Living life to the full

There is no better (in a very sad way) to realise how important it is to live this life that was fought for by so many who gave their tomorrows for our today by visiting their graves and seeing their sacrifice.

I am lucky in that I along with some other friends have a very knowledgeable Battlefield tour guide friend who out of the goodness in his heart organises and takes us on European tours to visit sites that should be visited and never forgotten.

So last Thursday it was a 5.15am start to get over to the Tunnel for a trip to visit the Somme battle fields and pay our respects at the Menin gate in Ypres. As last time we laid a wreath as part of the last post ceremony to show our respects and say a silent thank you to the millions  -yes millions  who never came home.

Plenty to see and think about .... and realise how lucky we are to live the lives we do.
