We will remember

Postby MrBenn on Wed Nov 10, 2010 3:21 pm

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.

by John McCrae, May 1915


They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

by Laurence Binyon, September 1914

Thank you for posting this - we fight a war game here, but there are so many out there who fought real wars and for many, are still fighting them in their heads, bodies and families.

Regardless of who you are and your stance on war, remember the individuals who didn't come home, and work for those who left something behind.

Though technically isn't Veteran's Day supposed to honor the survivors of wars, while Memorial Day honors those who died in battle?

That would be the American take on it. I'm not sure other countries celebrate Armistice Day the same way we do.

Flanders is appropriate in one way though. Veterans day marks the end of WWI, so picking a battle from that war makes sense.

The author of that poem was Canadian (in fact, the first verse is printed on the C$10 bill). Up there, it's Remembrance Day, which encompasses the meanings of all three of our "military" holidays (Veterans' Memorial, and Armed Forces

I'm happy I read that and now know this, actually. It's enlightening (:
