For those who gave everything

During a sunny day trip to Ottawa I visited the National War Memorial. I had walked passed it a few times during fleeting visits, though never stopped to look at it. It is a similar story with many memorials in the UK. They often go un-noticed. Iv made it a point to at stop and look and spend a few moments thinking about them when I am walking around.

While it would seem customary to save these pictures for November 11th, I’m going to post them anyway, because we should never forget the tragic loss of life during all forms of warfare, regardless of how long ago, or what your stance or attitude is on each conflict. Ultimately young people laid down their lives.
