REMEMBRANCE DAY, NOVEMBER 11

REMEMBRANCE DAY, NOVEMBER 11

With everything currently going on in the world, we can’t forget to take a moment on November 11th to remember the fallen soldiers who fought for us. We are forever indebted, and no matter how busy the day we should take a moment to remember the brave soldiers for their courage and sacrifice.

Unfortunately, with the current health issue, we can’t gather in-person to remember the heroic soldiers, but we hope you will take a moment, no matter where you are, to remember.

A beautiful poem: In Flanders Fields

By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

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.
