“Humanists pay tribute to all those who have died in war. Some were inspired by a belief that they were fighting for a just cause. Others simply accepted their duty to their country. We honour them all for their bravery and self-sacrifice.
Many of these men and women had no expectation of any reward in an afterlife; they were sufficiently inspired by the rights and needs of their fellow human beings.
We look forward to a time when there is greater personal acceptance of our shared responsibility for all human beings – and when international warfare becomes a thing of the past!”
We hope many humanists will be in attendance this year, as usual, to show our respect and support for those who died in wars.
