I hope you all don't mind..but given that today is Rememberance Day I would ask that everyone just take a few moments to remember those who have made the Ultimate Sacrifice for the Freedom that We All Enjoy.. The Last Post

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.

Some History on Lt. Col. John McCrae, MD

Your place or mine?


I 2nd that....a moment of silence and remembrance for the many men, women and children who lost their lives to wars and conflicts happening now and in the past. May they rest in peace, never to be forgotten.

Amen.

And my gravest sympathies to those soldiers and innocent civilians who continue to die because of politics, insatiable greed, stupid decisions, corruption, deceit, hypocrisy, religion, power, and a general unwillingness to really do whatever it takes to bring peace and equality to all humankind instead of protecting one's self interest first.
