A Different Christmas Poem

For those who serve.
For those who serve. | Source

When this video arrived from a trusted friend, with a note that he had, for the first time, sent it to ALL of his addressbook, I knew it would be different and hoped it was worth viewing.

It satisfied both criteria and I immediately started this hub to spread it as far and wide as I can.

We sat around the screen watching this, and I read the poem to my family as it played on the monitor.

It brings home the reality of a situation, one we so easily forget at this time of celebration, and shows our indebtedness to those who serve us, who protect us, and who die to keep us safe and secure.

Enjoy the video, have a great Christmas, and never forget those who we so often fail to honour.

And spread it far and wide, lest we forget.
