Never Look Away

                                                                                      Armistice day, 2012.
                               Never Look Away

Remember, remember,
11th November,
No more gunpowder,
Gas screaming rot.

Remember this day,
Never again,
And tomorrow those who fell we forgot.

Remember, remember, remember.

    Very deep write, David. There is also a date I never forget....April 14...the day of the Armenian Genocide by the Turks...almost 100 years ago. Thanks for visiting my work. I will read more of you. If you have the time and the inclination, please read my latest blog...Assumptions

    David, this world is not what it is... everything standing tall eventually falls... Sad, are the memories we have to endure with such pain. We do seem to forget, but all the tension inside of us, falls far into a coma ,, it kind of wants us to forget.... Don't you think?? Some days are from remembering when it comes to wickedness... love this verse,,, LINDA
