We should remember why these brave people have died, we should remember the political, religious and financial reasons, the defense against idiologies that were and still are seen to be evil.
But as time has gone by we as a species have begun to forget the immeasurable cost of war. Not in Dollors or in pounds, but in the suffering caused to so many people all over the world.
I am glad that those brave souls are now in the place that they may have called heaven. The swirling energy that makes up the very fabric of our spiritual universe. And our leaders should remember that they are responsable for the suffering, and that the brave and poor were, and still are, the ones that have to sort out the mess caused by the failings of the elite. An elite that are all to keen to fight wars in which they will never pick up a gun, or fire a shot.
We should all meditate and concentrate our energies on convincing our "leaders" that it is only they that want war. For we are all part of a greater whole, and there is no more a feeble fight than one against ones self.
