Remembrance Day

November 11 - Remembrance Day         

Today, we take two minutes of silence to reflect on the freedoms and peace we have in our lives. We honour, thank, and remember those who served and sacrificed their lives for us.

In Flanders Fields 
by Lt Col John McCrae 

(Composed at the Battlefront on May 3, 1915 
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium) 

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.
