Perspective.

I have to admit, a tear or two did find its way to the corner of my eye whilst watching that heartbreaking footage at the weekend. I couldnít help it, it was the thought of those young men bravely doing their best, in a foreign land, for their country, for the likes of you and me.

And to have their futures so brutally and unnecessarily snatched from them like that. Itís a disgrace, an injustice and we should never forget the suffering that occurred on our behalf..

I was thinking of the 90th anniversary of the Somme. Why what did you think I was talking about?
