Today, we remember all of those who have fallen. All of those who have sacrificed for our country and our freedom. Take a second, minute, or all day to remember anyone who has been affected.
Lest We Forget! Take a moment of silence, read, and think of those sacrifices. Enjoy the poem below, made famous by John McCrae. 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.
