Would you?

What is in your heart today that you would fight for, give your life for?
Have you ever felt a passion for someone or something within you that was so great you would fight for it?
Think about it. Who or what lights the fire in your soul.
For what or for whom, would you be willing to embrace that battle?

Today is Bannockburn Day? On this day, the
people of Scotland celebrate their victory under the
command of Robert Bruce over the English in the Battle
of Bannockburn in 1314. Each year the Scottish National
Party commemorates the battle with a march to
Bannockburn field from Stirling town centre. There then
follows a laying of a wreath at the statue of Robert
Bruce and then a rally.

Remembering

I recently forgot to do something that was important (well to me). After thinking and addressing the facts, I felt that we all forget to do things, even important things. It is a quirk of human nature.
However, today there is one thing we should all try to remember.
On April30, 1975, Saigon was captured and renamed Ho Chi Minh City. The last American civilians were airlifted out of Saigon on this date. This marked the final and complete end of the Vietnam War.
The end of war is always a good thing to remember.

 Here are a few images to remind us of that.
