I never fail to be moved by the parading veterans on Armistice Day. I think of what they have seen but more importantly who they have lost. All those brave men and women who have given their lives for their country who were once their friends and colleagues. Does it move you too? Does it inspire you to put those feelings into words? Or has something else inspired you today?
