THIS year's Remembrance Sunday feels different to some in the past.

That is because this year we must be asking ourselves: "When will it ever end?"

We will be remembering our own - those who did not grow old but died in battlefields around the world.

We will remember those who were not killed in war, who did live to grow old but who were damaged forever, either mentally of pysically, and lived with the scars for the rest of those lives.

We will be remembering those who are still fighting or peacekeeping and we will remember the children who are growing up without a parent and the widows who must go on alone.

But this year, too, we will remember the Ukrainians who have already given up their lives for their country and those brave souls who are standing up to Putin in a defiance which has made every one of them heroes in the eyes of the world.

There have been many wars since the end of the two World Wars and Britain has fought in at least some of those.

This year, although we are not losing our own, we are watching Europe where a despot, who must be likened to Hitler, is waging a war simply based on greed and some searing need to be seen to be all powerful.

We do not remain unaffected by this war in Erope. There are food shortages and huge power hikes, at least some of which is caused by the war.

While we face the misery ahead - and there will be some - we should extend this Remembrance Sunday to include those who are suffering more. We have refugees who have fled with virtually nothing.

There are also the civilians and soldiers who have stayed and who face the  coming winter with no electricity, less food than we have and the constant fear that Putin's indiscriminate bombing of residential areas.

So this year, as we remember the heroes of the past, let us also remember and pray for the heroes of the present.

"At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them."
