  • Rememberance

    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

    Take time today to remember those that died protecting our countries.
    Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
    So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
    Good luck and stay well.
    Glen

      Re: Rememberance

      Isn’t it odd that many US citizens believe this poem was written about the US doughboys that died as part of the Allied Expeditionary Force (AEF) in France during the First World War?

      In actual fact it was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) - Canadian Army.

      This is indeed the time for remembrance, for the First World War ended on this date – 11/11 at 11 o’clock in 1918 – Armistice Day – now called Veterans Day.

      Glen, Thanks for the memory.

        We remember all who have died and pray that the human family will finally realize that we are indeed a family. Killing each other is such a waste of beautiful life and the creative genius of the human spirit.

          Leon, You are so right. What is even more sad is the number of people who have died in battles in the name of God - call me crazy but I tend to doubt that is what he had in mind!

          To all of our service men and woman - THANK YOU ALL for all you have given to the world. To those lost-- may you rest in peace and may we all make you proud of what we have done with the gift of freedom!

            "For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag." - Zell Miller

              Ain't that the truth.
              Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
              So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
              Good luck and stay well.
