Memorial Day 2011

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.

John McCrae (1872-1918)

During the grill outs, pool parties and big store sales, take time to remember the reason for this day and thank the Lord for those men and women who gave the last full measure of devotion so we can sleep soundly...free.

I never understood humans needing war. A cat fight is just enough.
