It's not Remembrance Day anymore but none the less, here I am on my way to the church service in Clive on Sunday, November 13. I know the church will be packed, as it is on Remembrance Sunday most years. In fact, as the years go on, it seems people are more willing and more "in tune" with paying respect to the sacrifice of those who have died. Probably because now there are more recent wars to sharpen people's memories of the great loss when a service man or woman doesn't come back.
Now there are photos in the paper of Cameron from Britain and Merkel from Germany with their heads together, both literally and figuratively. How things change. What was once the gravest enemy is now a nation that we trade with, communicate with, and work with solve common problems. How the world turns!
