Time to Remember those whom answered the Call of Duty

MajorStains

As some of you may or may not know, this time of the year is marked in the calendar in many parts of the world, not because of the launch of another computer game.

But to mark a much more poignant occasion.

 

This Sunday, 10th November is known as Armistice Day, or Remembrance Sunday.

It  is a time to honour and remember all of the brave men and women around the globe, who have stepped up and answered the Call of Duty, and fearlessly went on to serve their Country.

 

Just for one day, try to forget all of your 'New World Problems', like "this game isn't 60fps" or "why can't I get true 1080p" and "how dare they not give us DLC". I'm as guilty as the next gamer, to come on here and have a good moan about something that is inconceivably immaterial and inane.

So for one day, even just one minute. Take a moment to remember all of the Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Sons, and Daughters who have served and are currently serving their Country.

To give us these basic freedoms which we take for grated on a daily basis.

 

Thank you for reading.

 

Remember Me
(The voice of the dead)


Remember me
Duty called and I went to war
Though I'd never fired a gun before
I paid the price for your new day
As all my dreams were blown away

Remember me
We all stood true as whistles blew
And faced the shell and stench of Hell
Now battle's done, there is no sound
Our bones decay beneath the ground
We cannot see, or smell, or hear
There is no death, or hope or fear

Remember me
Once we, like you, would laugh and talk
And run and walk and do the things that you all do
But now we lie in rows so neat
Beneath the soil, beneath your feet

Remember me
In mud and gore and the blood of war
We fought and fell and move no more
Remember me, I am not dead
I'm just a voice within your head
