WE REMEMBER



Photobucket
A NATION OF FREEDOM FROM
 THE COURAGE OF HEROES

On this Remembrance Day, we honour our fallen heroes for their service, their commitment, their courage.  And their extraordinary sacrifices.  They fought tyranny and oppression, stopped dictators and despots, eased suffering and despair.  And left us an enduring and cherished gift:

  FREEDOM

As we remember all who gave their lives in the noble pursuit of liberty, the eternal light of our nations’ gratitude shines on.

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 your 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.
