Remembrance Day. “Lest we forget.”

_ds_6061_std

So many emotions today. A mixture of emotions, sorrow, anguish yet also and I have to be honest, anger when I think of such a tragic waste of life. We must always remember, commemorate all those that died, many of them so young for their supreme sacrifice however we must always be vigilant and work towards peace. As I heard on the radio yesterday an astronaut coming back from space stated as he viewed the earth, this beautiful, green, planet”There were no borders.”

As President Marcon said today “Patriotism is the opposite of Nationalism.” Well said!

As a writer I have always promoted social justice and peace in the guise of my many characters. banner-history-lessons

Here’s me as Lieutenant Colonel Walters at Erdington library and playing the privileged role of my father Chief Petty Officer, Patrick Hayes.
