Remembrance !!!

I Remember Do You ??

I’m straying away from my usual blogs because I think this is a very important topic that we should all pay attention to.

It is Remembrance Day on November 11 th.

 We should all remember and be thankful that we live in the place we do.

We should all thank all the men and women who have given their lives so that we can have the freedom and rights  that we have. They are our grandfathers , grandmothers, fathers , mothers ,brothers , sisters , husbands and wives.

We should all continue to thank the men and women who are putting their lives on the line for us each and every day.

We should also thank the families who have lost family members and are still sacrificing for the sake of our freedom in our countries.

So come on people get out and support our Military members. Get your POPPIES !!!

Read this poem and say a prayer for all our military still out there putting their lives on the line!!!!

                              In Flander’s 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 Flander’s Field

 

                         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 the faith with us who die

                      We shall not sleep , tho poppies grow

                                        In Flander’s fields

Liet. Col. John McCrae
