In Honor of our Veterans

Wednesday, November 11, 2009
I just wanted to say THANK-YOU to all who have served our country (my dear Dad as well as other family members included). Please remember our brave men and women in uniform and the families of those who paid the ultimate price in your prayers.

In Flanders Fields

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918), Canadian Army

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.
