We Must Not Forget

It is Easter Monday and on Easter Monday in the year 1916, the glorious Easter Rising took place as Irishmen and Irishwomen stood up to the might of the British Army and demanded freedom for Ireland.The British would pummel the rebels with their artillery and they would slaughter innocent Irish civilians as they sought to quell the rebellion.While the British may have succeeded in putting down the rebellion, the Irish people succeeded ultimately since the Rising is still honoured and celebrated to this day.

God bless the men and women who gave their lives to give me the freedom I now hold and the Irishness I so cherish. The Irish people must never forget their sacrifice.
