We Will Remember Them

by swonderfulsmarvellous

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

I visited the WW1 battlefields twice while I was at school. They were the most poignant 2 weeks of my life. I had an amazing time, experiencing the trenches, seeing the cemeteries and learning about trench warfare. It’s odd to think that I had an amazing time on a battlefields visit; but we had a lot of laughs, as well as tears.

I think it’s important to remember that all those who have died in conflicts past (and present) fought for our right to live. Thank you.

Yes- this is me in a trench.
