Today marks the 100 year anniversary of the first outbreak of the First World War.
Why should we remember?
“Why should we stop and think about those events that happened so long ago? By the end of the First World War there were very few people in the countries that took part who remained unaffected.
The war reached out and touched almost everyone’s life in some way or another”.
It’s our lives, our history, our story. We learn from the past and try our best to make things better for the descendants to come. War isn’t something I have had to live with or live through, my Grandparents did. The devastation, heartache, and magnitude of loss affects us. Remembering helps educate future generations to understand.
I thought today would be a fitting day to share Rita’s recent creation for a gentleman as a keepsake for his military history memoirs.
She has used the new military chipboard pieces and painted them up with various colours. They look great. I am sure the recipient will love this.
