The fallen soldiers and those who aided them, from the mundane workers making munitions blown up during raids to the resistance fighters deep within enemy territory who suffered fates worse than death, were all remembered yesterday. As usual this time of year I pay respect to our collective ancestors that fought to keep Britain free from tyranny past but when Our Boys are at war, my thoughts are always for the troops in service, living their day-to-day lives under the threat of death and especially over the past week. So I used yesterday to remember the recent victims not of war, but of outright murder that happened within our ranks.
Five of Our Boys in Afghanistan were murdered by a so-called Afghan ally who is now safely tucked up with the local Taliban. And just a few days ago, a Muslim Jihadist went berserk and murdered thirteen US Boys & Girl in Fort Hood.
So this is a remembrance to all the men and women who murdered by cowards. You shall never be forgotten. Rest in peace and God bless those left behind, may you find comfort that they died heroes defending Our Rights.
My prays are for those brave souls taken from us at Nad-e-Ali. My deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones.

We shall always remember the fallen and will ensure their sacrifice is not in vain.
And serious questions need to be asked regarding Islam in our lands. For a Religion of Peace, it sure seems violent.
What a calm and collected girl. God bless her and the rest of the survivors.
