Commemorations, Animal Remembrance and Personal Pilgrimages - July News
Posted on 31st July 2017 by Julie and David Thomson in General News.
We started this month commemorating the 101st year since The Battle of The Somme and we end the month reflecting on the Centenary of The 3rd Battle of Ypres. Both sets of commemorations had remembrance at their core and a longing to make sure the story of those who gave so much is not forgotten by the modern world. Have we learned anything from war? The world is still a place of conflict, negativity and terror at times, but we also live in a world full of natural beauty, kindness and generosity of spirit. We all need to strive to make the world a better place.
July weather has been mixed, some heavy rain but mainly warm days and perfect exploring weather. The fields are now full of harvesters as the farmers work around the clock to bring in the crops before the next rains. We stop and stare at this once war ravaged landscape now so beautiful with hay bails, birds and peace.
