Remembrance Day 2010

Those who have served our country in times of war and in times of peace are forever in my gratitude.

Thank you for all you have done, and to my comrades and friends who continue to serve, be smart, be safe, but above all else, be brave.

We, as a country, owe you our freedom.

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae, May 1915

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.
