Day 25 – National Lockdown Countdown – Remembrance Sunday

2020  A year when everything has changed

What hasn’t changed is that millions gave up their lives for us today.  Our parents, grandparents and other relatives fought for us in two world wars and other more recent battles striving for peace and freedom.  We cannot thank them enough.

In 2020 doctors, nurses and key workers across the world are fighting on our behalf to beat Covid-19.  We have witnessed courage, determination, sacrifice and kindness at closer hand.  They still need our support to beat the virus.  We cannot thank them enough either.

Today we can remember those who we have loved and lost, whether it be 100, 75, 50, 25, 5 or less than 1 year ago and thank them for shaping and touching our lives.

For those who play indoors, we learned yesterday that Peter Hind passed away in his care home in Suffolk last weekend.  A kind and gentle man and our thoughts go out to his family at this sad time.
