Remembrance Day Service: On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour, we all stood silently to reflect and to honour those men and women who have gone before us in service of our country.
Remembrance Day is marked by a minute’s silence, and as the silence falls it offers us the opportunity for reflection and gratitude.
Remembrance Day is a special day for Australians and for the World. It is a moment when we can pause and contemplate the moment in 1918 when silence fell on the Western Front of World War I, to remember those who lost their lives serving and protecting their country, and to honour all those men and women who continue to serve their country.
I joined the Remembrance Day Service which was held by the Castle Hill and District RSL sub-Branch at the Castle Hill RSL Club. The event was solemn and gave the attendees time and a space for reflection.
Stories were told of those who made sacrifices, and wreaths were laid to honour the fallen. Thank you to those who have laid down their lives in service of their country, and to those who continue to sacrifice for their country today. Thank you to the Castle Hill and District RSL sub-Branch for arranging the beautiful service.
