For their unshakeable resolve
For us, the storm has past, the war is over. But let us not forget those who journeyed into the howling dark, and did not return. For their sacrifice required courage beyond measure, and an unshakeable faith that their fight – our fight – was elsewhere. As we look on into an uncertain, but bright future, we will always dedicate this day to honour those who have fallen. They enabled all of us, and they shall not be forgotten.
Eternal paradise is theirs by right, and so they shall rest easy knowing that the generations after them will never forget what price they have paid. They will sleep well and they will sleep soundly, as future generations continue to take up the mantle to safeguard what they fought so hard to preserve, and what they died to defend.
Liberty, and peace.
