It is a simple but vital reminder that many died in conflict so we could enjoy the lives we live today.

Did they really die so we can enoy the lives we live today? Did the Germans who died die so Germans can enjoy the lves they live today, or Iraqis? Most of the people who died did so reluctantly because they were ordered to by politicians and would have preferred not to. There's nothing worse than the living of today leeching on the memory those who died yesterday for their own self-aggrandisement.

Many who died were medics in all conflicts. Soldiers who died and suffered in Belfast in the 70s were attempting to keep people safe. Many soldiers were only trying to do what they felt was right. It is sad when people do not respect their sacrifices. Ask what you can do for your country not what your country can do for you.
