Lest We Forget

It is just coming on dawn here on teh Ranch in North Central Baja Jorja, and according to one of my World Clocks also just coming on sunset in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. This provides a juxtaposition rather appropriate to the day for me. Here, ANZAC (Australia New Zealand Army Corps) Day is just beginning, there it wraps up.

I don't, generally, get into any of the 'meme' postings here or on other sites where I conduct 'social networking' related to remembering military service personnel, or the dichotomy between the politicians that send them to battle and those they send. It's real, don't get me wrong on that count. Simply, it is too personal for me. Most of those memories involve people I knew and worked with. Some involve family. Others involve Aussies and Kiwis though not specifically any of their military service members.

So I don't indiscriminately pass around those commentaries to 'make' people pause and remember that Freedom Is Not Free. I choose my times, some of which are truly International, some specific to my country, some to other countries yet all are interwoven because we are all part of This World, to Remember.

Lest We Forget.
