Today it is both Diwali and Armisitice day. With one, the nation pauses at eleven AM to remember those who have fallen in conflict. The other, a festival of light celebrating the triumph of good over bad.
Divas, lamps, lanterns and candles are also lit to guide home loved ones, family and friends. With the armistice, we consider those that may not be coming home. It is for them that the candles, divas and lamps burn that bit brighter.
