Today here in New Zealand, we commemorate those fallen soldiers who fought for our freedom in global conflicts throughout history. Called ANZAC Day, it stemmed from the campaign during WW1 on the shores of Gallipoli, Turkey. Brings back memories of us walking the 370kms to Gallipoli from Istanbul to attend a dawn service there back in 2011.
Today though, it was one here in our home city of Christchurch.
The sound of the bugle being renditioned always has the hairs on the back of the neck stand to attention.
Then, making the most of the autumn day, it was a walk along the beach, a little adventure that is free.
Perhaps because of those that fought for our freedom.
So, lest we forget.
