Description

"You want us to remember? We'd rather not - but how could we ever forget?"

Moving and raw poem for Remembrance Sunday that unpicks the well-known phrases "We will remember them" and "Lest we forget", and the tension behind them for those who have experienced the effects of conflict first hand.

This video is designed to be used as a feature in Remembrance Sunday services, and to be culturally accessible for many nominal church-goers who might be attending. The poem ends with the familiar words of Laurence Binyon's poem 'For the Fallen', as a tribute to all casualties of war, and could be played just before the two minute silence.
