Makes it difficult for anyone to feel guilty ;o) Wed 20 Jan 2010 13:48:25 GMT+1 Patrick Too http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/01/war_memorials_in_peril.shtml?page=50#comment2 P.S I'm not making light of this by any means. The whole ideal of what I made up was a reflection on how quickly folk do forget. Unfortunately, I can see it happening that the further and further we 'get away' from active remembrance of past wars and the horrors within - the more likely we are to enter - almost casually - into other wars. Some folk might say that we are doing this already.

Yet his grave was untended and overgrown and unless you were having a good rummage - you wouldn't even know it was there. This led me to consider what I'd like on my plaque, or whatever anyone decides to remember me with;"In 100 years, I'll be forgotten. Do you know what? I think that's rotten!".(c)Me. Circa 2000.
