Remember

Tomorrow is November 11th.

Take a moment tomorrow to remember those that came before you,

and who fought and died in battles for you,

Grandparents, Great Grandparents, relatives, and those still in active duty today.

While many were lucky enough to have relatives come back alive,

Despite being in dangerous conditions…

Never forget those who didn’t.

Laying in mass graveyards on foreign soil.

So remember tomorrow at 11:00 am to take a moment and reflect back…

And thank a vet.

    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.
