We will remember them

Every year, for a brief moment in the middle of November, the heroes of yesterday once again walk with us.

Every Remembrance Day, in the middle of a busy morning, we stand for a minute's pause and remember the men and women who fought so bravely on foreign shores to defend the values of justice and peace that we enjoy today.

On that day, in that hour, in those seconds, we remember, and in doing so, these heroes once again walk proudly down Main Street amongst us, the drums marking each step of their path. We are very much aware that some would return, but all too many would sleep forevermore in the battlefields of war.

Have you seen a drone flying in your neighbourhood?
