In that week I was in Austria and it was very moving to be there while those commemorations were taking place at home.
In this graveyard at the Catholic Church in Gosau I stopped and looked at a memorial. I don't read German but clearly it was for soldiers who had served in the war and are remembered here.
Later in the week, we visited Salzburg and went to the fortress s.een here at the top of the hill
The castle was well worth a visit, the views over the city were spectacular on a hot and sunny day.
And the fighting still continues in so many places around the world.
We will remember them.
And we will work for peace.
|Yes, we took the hard way up - following others up the hill. This is the last section of the climb.|
