Week 17: Anzac Parade

On the morning of Anzac Day we went for a walk along Seatoun Beach. The clouds were ominous, but they cleared to let the daylight through.

Returned servicemen marched behind a brass band; their medals and their remembrance poppies proudly pinned to their chest.

"But year after year, their numbers get fewer. Someday, no one will march there at all."

I hope we will always honour the memory of those who gave their lives so that we may live in freedom.
