Lest we forget

Today is remembrance Sunday and the word remembrance conjures up many things. There is remembrance of those brave souls who fought for us during the war. But I have been remembering others today, who are in my view heroes of a different kind.

Today I want to celebrate those who have fought and are fighting a different kind of battle, especially at this time. So I shout out to people who endure depression day after relenting day without putting a full stop to their sentence. I shout out to those battling poverty, struggling to feed their children against the odds. And to those on the streets, with pavements as their pilow, street warriors, keep going.

Today I celebrate the invisible, the unnoticed, the neglected and the forgotten. Because I see you. Having frequently been overlooked, I know what that feels like. And so I try my best to notice.

Keep fighting on everyone. Keep hoping.

Today’s recipe of hope is to9 notice those you normally would not. Challenge yourself today to see those who may be invisible to others, lest we forget. X
