Lest We Forget …

Every November 11, we gather to express our appreciation to those who served in World War I and World War II, and in subsequent wars.

At Remembrance Services, we respond to the reading of the Ode of Remembrance by saying in unison, “lest we forget.”

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.

Lest we forget what?

  • the children, women and men who are devastated by wars beyond their control

  • those who serve on our behalf in the armed forces today and in recent years

  • the sacrifice of veterans past

We must not forget the painful sacrifice that war extracts, nor the relentless horror that war inflicts, so that we never, never go lightly into war.

We must not forget, so that we persistently demand that our governments seek realistic alternatives to armed conflict, and diligently plan for peace.

We will remember them.

Lest We Forget
