Take A Few Moments At 11 Am To Remember Those Who Died for Your Freedoms

Poppy

Today is Remembrance Day. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we take time to remember those who gave their lives in various wars in the defense of our freedoms as Canadians.

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.

Lest We Forget
