It was very touching to see so many people, both locally and across the country, mark the 100th anniversary since Britain joined World War One.
I think the dimming of lights and the putting out of candles was very fitting considering the number of lives that were snuffed out.
We must continue to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in all wars, but particularly this one when so many young men died in horrible conditions.
But we must also never forget the lessons from such a bloody conflict, and others since. The price is simply too heavy to pay.
