Lynne’s take on Remembrance

…so that we may live our tomorrows.
May we never forget that the freedoms we enjoy today are, when push comes to shove, safeguarded by our security services.
17 million deaths in World War One are a heart wrenching statistic portraying man’s inhumanity to man.

“Never again” was the cry, but the seeds were set for further inhumanity, detonated by Hitler and Mussolini.

Last night, on November 11, we saw another marvelous commemoration of the sacrifice of millions at the Albert Hall in London.
It’s a commemoration that Lynne and I used to watch on black and white TV with our dads.

We now do it out of a sense of dignified duty to support our heroes, the wind beneath our wings.
 We are now at a time in history that none of us want to be a replay of the 1930’s, but we are all concerned at the war of words that is currently being pitched between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.

Is it just a spat between adolescents, or could it be the start of the end of the world?

Je ne c’est pas.

Let’s pray it isn’t.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
