In Flanders Field’s

11 Nov

Today is a day for all to remember, for some to reflect upon all the brave Canadian souls who fought and are fighting on behalf of our country. We salute you. To all the brave families grieving loss of a loved on, we salute you.

Here is a poem, a memory to all and one we all know for this and every Remembrance Day:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

– John McCrae

Let us remember those who gave their lives for our country.
