Lest We Forget


Today I watched the incredibly moving coverage of the dedication of the new New Zealand War Memorial on Hyde Park corner in London. It brought back to me the hundreds of hours that I spent writing out names of fallen men in a Roll of Honour. Each name a life lost. Each death, a family shattered.
I am a third generation pacifist, however I have only the highest respect for people who lose their lives in pursuit of what they believe in, and hence find the memorial a very fitting reminder. One has, however, to hope that there will not be the need for additional such memorials. As the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq demonstrate, there has to be a better way than resorting to war.

I will not agree on it. I think warm-hearted post. Especially the designation attracted me to read the whole story.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
