Lest we Forget


The following is an open msg posted on Facebook by Ben Weston http://www.throughananglerseyes.com/


G'day Guys,
I thought I'd jump on quickly tonight a touch base with you all before tomorrow.
I have been given the opportunity to be the 'fishing guru', as Andrew put it for HOWAUS.
But even a fishing guru has to put fishing aside for a day as an ex-returned serviceman as tomorrow, ANZAC day is a significant and special day!

For me tomorrow is an emotionally charged one, Tears will be shed, there will many moments of dissociative reflection which I'm sure 100% of you will experience.
Remember, ANZAC day for us is a day of reflection, remembrance and respect, however it is also an opportunity to celebrate the very way of life us and our families enjoy,
a way of life that those who served before, with and after us fought for on the battle fields across the world.
Most of all though it is your day, a day that you are thanked, a day you can stand tall and wear the medals you earnt with great pride.

After it is all done take some you time, as i said it is an emotionally taxing day. I always experience a feeling of emptiness after ANZAC day.
The sun rises in the morning you and many pay their respects. People you have never met thank you, talk to you and quiz you on your medals. But once the day draws to a close I get a feeling of being thanked one day and forgotten the next, after all we live in a throw it away society.

For me the best thing to do is escape reality, get out of the house and wet a line, enjoy what is around you.
Enjoy the smells, pictorial beauty around you, that unexplainable feeling of weightlessness and freedom from life.
Feel alive, escape and enjoy wetting a line days after tomorrow.
Flick the bail arm over and cast that lure or bait into the sea of life which forever gives, but never forgets.

Fishing saved my life, live, breath it, feel it... Good luck tomorrow lads, I'll be thinking of you all!

Tight lines and Lest We Forget!

Ben
