We Will Remember Them

Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday

 

…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.

 

 

We Will Remember Them

Angus Provost Brian Boyd –

“Tomorrow is Armistice Day, when we can all pause to remember the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces.

“At 11am tomorrow, whether at home or at work and if it is at all possible for you to do so, please take two minutes to silently remember those brave souls - those whose sacrifice, throughout the past century and now today, allows us to lead the lives we lead and to have many freedoms that would otherwise be out of reach.

“We should also reflect on those service men and women who continue to serve our country throughout the world at a time of heightened global anxiety and concern. We are extremely proud of the work they do. As they protect and support us, we will support them. Always.

“War in Ukraine brings the tragedy of conflict into very sharp focus. We pray for peace and for every soul that has been lost or harmed as a result of this war and, with unwavering support for the people of Ukraine, we hope for an armistice.

“This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. It is another opportunity for us all to take time to reflect - whether alone or with friends and family - and honour all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our freedoms. We will remember them.

“There are a number of services, parades and the laying of wreaths across Angus and I would encourage you, if you are able, to join with others in your community at the events to pay respect to the fallen.”
