eddie1 Remembrance Sunday (UK) (77* d) RE: Remembrance Sunday (UK) 11 Nov 09


If we can accept that Mudcat represents a microcosm, similar to the "real world" outside and that wars are fought over greed greed for power, material gain ("I'm scoring more points than you"), greed to show that I'm more clever, intellectual or intelligent than you and we look at the arguments we at Mudcat get into, from our entrenched beliefs, then it's not surprising that wars continue. Perhaps it's a universal failing in the human race?

Before someone challenges me for having the wrong day, let me make it clear that I'm in the UK, a totally different time zone from the US. It's now just after 0915 on Wednesday 11th November. At 1100, I will sit quietly for 2 minutes and remember. Remember those who have fallen, remember those who lived on for a time, battered and broken in body or in mind, and think of those who have lost, and are continuing to lose, loved ones.

I have no difficulty in wishing at the same time that we could be blessed with peace. This does not mean that I think any less of those I will remember!

Eddie
