Today Australia, along with other Commonwealth nations, celebrates Remembrance Day to honor those who fell in World War I. They paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the rest of us could live in freedom.
Some signed up willingly, expecting the romance of adventure. Others, with eyes wide-open knew exactly what they were stepping into. Some chose of their own volition and others answered the call of their country.
Whether they fought in pivotal battles, or supported from store rooms, they gave their lives so that we can enjoy ours.
They have up their future, their dreams and their loved ones.
As Jesus said,
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them.”
