Remembrance Day 2018

Today marks 100 years since Armistice Day, and around the world people are marking the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month with two minutes silence.

May we never see such futile waste again.
May we learn from history.
May we never forget.












The art students at Hurlstone Agricultural High School made an art installation for Sculpture in the Vineyards which runs from 2nd to the 18th of November in the Hunter Valley. Comprising of ceramic poppies in a field, there are also 32 ceramic helmets, one for each country that was involved in WWI.

  20. A touching commemoration, Lydia. It is good to see that the ultimate sacrifice of so many people in their prime is not forgotten and the younger generations are aware of our history.
    Thank you for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.
