Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the treadOf the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.
Such a tragic event. Yet another example showing that the Great War is with us still. Given the setting, it is appropriate to recall the classic lines from Binyon's poem, For The Fallen:"They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe.They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."
Thank you, John — most fitting.
