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
