I hate war, I hate the fact that people have to fight, people have to get injured,and mostly i hate that people have to die.
Yet while I hate war I understand that at times war is the only answer, that fighting is the only way to protect the human rights of people and to ensure the liberty of others.
So today as a country we remember the brave men and woman who fight in these present wars and the ones that have passed.
Who put themselves, their lives on the line fighting for freedom.
Today we stand together united in remembrance.
Today I pray for the many soldiers who bravely fight for this country.
Today I pray that they will all return home to the loved ones waiting for them.
Today we honour them.
Lest we never forget.
