This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday when we remember what Is fundamentally important to us as human beings - the sacrifice of those who have died in war and conflict; the dead as well as the survivors and their families. We also remember the hope for lasting peace. The first Armistice Day in 1919 was to remember what it took to end the First World War which had devastated so many lives as well as the landscape. The fervent hope then was for lasting peace. Unfortunately, human beings could not refrain from the hunger for power and control and so peace remains as elusive today as ever. But that does not stop us hoping and praying for peace one day.
