CoolCanucks Remembers.….

Please take a moment of silence today to remem­ber and hon­our those who have given their lives serv­ing Cana­di­ans and help­ing peo­ple of other nations.

In Flan­ders Fields

By: Lieu­tenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872–1918) Cana­dian Army

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.
