Memory is indeed about celebrating the lives of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. But this cannot be achieved without a clear understanding of our history and the evolution we had to go through to get to where we are, and the values that so many have sacrificed their lives to protect. This memory should be like a beacon that guides us forward despite the setbacks/challenges we face. It’s a memory that binds us together despite our political affiliations. There cannot be a better time for reflection and the re-sync of the political/historical context of these significant events in history. After all it’s not just about wearing poppy flowers.
