As the American people go to the polls to elect political leaders the world awaits the outcome with trepidation. In a few more days we will attend Remembrance Day ceremonies dedicated to the men and women who died during the First and Second World Wars. My thoughts are on peace and what it has cost nations around the world…. My thoughts and prayers are with my American friends and relatives today. May you be guided by peace; by the sacrifices made by our fathers, mothers,grandfathers and grandmothers, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. Let it not be in vain.
