Home Page Feature 11/11/09

Oh my! I was/am stunned to find Lest we Never Forget has been featured today on the homepage!! I am thrilled, doubly so as it is a day of Rememberance and spending the morning in town at the Rememberance Parade and feeling proud that both girls have had their part to play along side our French neighbours and friends – Chloe as always playing the Band and Naomi reading from a French Solidiers Journal in front of everyone…it is hard not to feel many emotions watching the older generations around us. Knowing like many towns in France under seige by the SS, refugees are said to be buried in my parents field, the French Resistance holing up in our friends Grange, and of course the atrocisties of Oradour-sur-Glane A town near Limoges that was burned to the ground by the SS who were wanting to make an “Example” to those that thought they could get away with being in or indeed hiding the French Resistance…it makes for chilling viewing and reading, and per chance you should visit the region a must to see, only 2 residents survived – one lady climbed out of the church window where the soldiers rounded the women and children up – the believed they were safe until the SS set the church on fire and shot at all in there….

I have mixed emotions that of delight that the image has been featured and of course quite a poignant moment!

This also means that hopefully Bubblers will also take the time to read the poem by Chloe!

I have had some other features during the last week also, as always I am thrilled that these images have been chosen!
