S and her troupe of Rainbows were involved with the Girlguiding Remembrance Sunday event locally. She was really keen to do this and got her uniform on this morning, pinning her poppy with pride (she has talked a lot about what war is and why people died and why we remember). We arrived with all the other children and they needed someone to carry the troupe flag. The leader asked one little girl who said no. S, on the other hand, said yes. She couldn’t wait to carry the flag and did a super job of it too.
The parade was very sweet. Each group laid wreaths or bunches of poppies. The service went well with everyone – even the little children – managing the 2 minute silence.
We will remember. We will not forget.
