ZenTiger Spending Freedom (ANZAC Day)

MacDoctor sums it up for me.

"And when the fight was over,
We spent what they had made”

he quotes from Pink Floyd. And then goes on to say why these words are truly profound.

"A war such as the Second World War can bring us the coin of freedom, but we often spend it without regard to how precious it truly is."

It was Pink Floyd again in "The Wall" who also said "Bring the boys back home"

I wish we could.

Lest we forget.

It is important to us that our children understand the significance of this day. Our 9 year old reminded us last night that we have to get up at dawn and "go and watch lots of people wearing poppies", she said it very seriously and solemnly so while she still has a little way to go to understand fully (children should be spared the full comprehension of war if possible) at least she is already taking on the importance of it.
