In case we forget

Perched on heels I teetered gently through the city… what is special about this time is I am not in a constant and formidable rush from one thing to the next… I was early for one meeting so I wandered through Martin Place where loads of mainly old men covered in medals attended a ceremony to mark the end of WW II in the Pacific… I arrived just as they played the haunting melody of “Lest we forget”… which I guess I and many others do all the time… there is a beautiful name for this day in Japan… “The day for mourning of war dead and praying for peace”… I guess we need to do a whole lot more of the latter…
