400TX:365 – Week 46 – Remember Them

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Week 46 fell on the week of Remembrance Day (Veterans Day for you in the US), November 11th marks the end of the First World War, and in Canada at the 11th Hour, on the 11th Month, on the 11th day we pause to remember them. I happened to find myself at the National Air Force Museum at Canadian Forces Base Trenton, in Trenton, ON is filled with the long and proud history of Canadian airmen and women. While many I can no longer photograph, I can photograph the planes that carried them to the sky. Remember them, not the planes. The planes are merely hunks of metal, wood, fabric, and plastic, but the brave men and women who took to the sky to fight for freedom, who still take to the dangerous skies to defend that freedom.

They are the ones that should be remembered.
