November 11, Rememberance Day

Remembering the lives given and taken during war - November 11.

In Flanders Fields

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.
— Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 - 1918)

"War is a business, and it costs not only money, but many lives also. So sad to see such business visit our planet. Perhaps there is a "time for peace" that will surprise us all. Let us pray for that as we remember on November 11 for those who lost and took lives."
