Other writers have said it far better than I ever could -
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.
Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
"When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today"
Attrib. John Maxwell Edmonds (1875-1958)
