November 11th is a very important day to me. I am a pacifist, I don't believe in making war and I absolutely feel that it isn't a solution. But I know there are hundreds of thousands who have laid down their lives to give me the luxury of that opinion.
I respect the fallen for the difficult choices they had to make. For the sacrifices they endured and their legacy.
Whether or not you agree with the occurrences of war and even without romanticizing every individual that fell to be a heroic ideal it is always important to remember the fallen and those that remained standing, but scarred.
I can't link this to personal growth or learning or development. But it is vitally important and cannot be forgotten.
All gave some. Some gave all. #lestweforget
