Requiescat in pace, Lee Rigby. He and I are both twenty five years old. I will go on to see tomorrow, but he will not be able to do the same. I hope his son never inadvertently sees footage of what happened to his father, as well as the subsequent despicable EDL protests. Although Binyon’s poem was written for soldiers who had died overseas during the Great War (WWI), I thought its sentiments were fitting.
