Remembrance Day gives reader some hope

God not ignored at Remembrance Day ceremonies, as is the case so often.

Editor: I attended the Remembrance Day parade and ceremony in downtown Langley. I am grateful to live in freedom. I am grateful to the ones who fought for that freedom. I am so very grateful that there is still hope for this country.

Why is there still hope? Because at those ceremonies, God was not ignored.  We prayed and we sang. We sang to God who is “our help in ages past, our hope for years to come.”

There are those who want to take God out of our national anthem completely. I’m sure those same people would object to the prayers and the song at that ceremony. But if those people succeed, hope for our country will be lost.

Lest we forget the ones who fought for us and our country. Lest we forget the one who made us and our world.
