For The Fallen

“Lest we forget who?” we asked some years ago, as we passed the sandstone gatepost on which the inscription was carved.

“Jesus,” our dad answered absently, distracted by the realisation that the narrow road we were driving along was actually a wide footpath.

Common traits of courage and self-sacrifice notwithstanding, today we remember the other great man with a donkey, and the ANZACs and their successors for whom he has become a symbol.

Lest We Forget.

Three cheers for the super donkey with it's environmentally friendly approach to ANZAC pooling, no spare seats here, nothing goes to waste. But indeed, best not forget.
