It will be 101 years since armistice was signed to end WW1.
At the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month ~ We will remember.
Lest We Forget.
We also remember with reverence and affection, a special villager from Ailalec. He warmly welcomed Jan at the village, when she first went there, and understood the importance of the Across the Timor Sea scholarship program.
He was also a freedom fighter, during the difficult times leading up to the vote for Independence for Timor Lesté in 1999, and in 2015 he died due to injuries suffered during that time.
He left a family of a loving wife and eight young children.
