The verse you're thinking of is:
"They grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them."
It's from a poem (I forget the name) by Rupert Brooke, an English poet
who was killed at Gallipoli in World War I. It's used at Remembrance
Day services throughout the UK every year, at which the words "We will
remember them" are repeated by everybody after the reading. I can't
think of any more appropriate passage for the tragedy referred to.
Yours in Scouting,
