I am anti-war, but am not blind to the sacrifice of the soldiers who have fought valiantly in our defence. I don’t always agree with the reasons for war, especially with today’s “War on Terror”, but that doesn’t mean I will disrespect the soldiers. I won’t get into my social or political beliefs here as it can be polarizing and cause more anger than help. Today is set aside to remember those who have fought for us with little regard for their own lives. Today is set aside to remember those who have fallen in battle. War is not glorious. War is full of death and pain and today is a day to remember those who sacrificed comfort and convenience to fight for their own country. I still dream of the unrealistic day where war is no longer a reality and peace will prevail so not another life needs to be lost to bombs and gunfights. Regardless of your beliefs, remember those who fought for your freedom.
