This year has seen war far too close at hand and we have felt at several times that it could get even closer. What ever has happened…  A phrase I keep hearing is … Not in this day and age.

Armistice Day, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The battlefields of the First World War 1914-1918 were silenced, the atrocities and enormous loss of life in the worst of circumstances came to an end. Soldiers and all involved in the war eventually came home.

And from February this year we have seen war, with destruction of cities and homes, people fleeing from their country in search of shelter.

At times it’s like the world has been shaken up!

But we all live with the hope that we can all one day be free…
