It's Remembrance Day today, an opportunity to remember those lost in war. It's a humbling day. My troubles are nothing compared to what many have gone through, and are still going through in places like Iraq and Afghanistan (and I mean on all sides). Like me, you will have ancestors who lived in troubled times, and like you, I realise the innate truth in the statement, 'There for the grace of God, go I'. This audio slide-show on the BBC website ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8352507.stm ) is remarkably poignant.
I am a lucky man indeed.
