Although there's no way we can truly understand how it felt to experience life during the world wars of the past, our study of history can at least give us a sense of the scale of what happened. With that, we can better appreciate what those who answered the call to arms sacrificed while the battles raged.
The further time marches on, however, the more distance there is between us and the events of World War I and II. And although no veterans of the First World War remain living today, those who participated in the second of the two remain committed to ensuring we don't forget the significance of their cause.
And one ambitious display of remembrance will ensure that those troubling times remain in our memories.
