  • A Moment of Respect, for all our brave boys (and gals)

    I had many relatives in various wars, most notably WWII. With deepest respect and undying love, we remember you all today.

    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.

    For all our foreign friends, this is Remembrance Day in Canada.

    For an brief but interesting read (not too detailed) on Canadian involvement in WWII, try http://www.historytelevision.ca/archives/canadaWW2/
