Never Forget.

And I can't help but wonder, no Willie McBride,
Do all those who lie here know why they died?
Did you really believe them when they told you "The Cause?"
Did you really believe that this war would end wars?
Well the suffering, the sorrow, the glory, the shame
The killing, the dying, it was all done in vain,
For Willie McBride, it all happened again,
And again, and again, and again, and again.

Green Fields Of France


  1. This should be played in every school in the land tomorrow Scott
    Will we ever learn?

  2. CC, sadly it seems not. We seem destined to repeat the same mistakes time after time...

  3. But what is interesting is that the students I have taught have been keen to observe the silence.

  4. As they should George. Heartening to know that it is still being observed.
