Lest We Forget…

by Susan

On this November 11th, we honor and remember all those who have sacrificed for our freedom.

Whether you call today Remembrance Day or Veterans Day, please join us in thanks to all those who are fighting for our freedom today and for those who have given of themselves in the past.

We thank you.

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae

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.

Thank you. We must remember every day not just today. To all those who did take the time to remember today, from the bottom of my heart, Thank you. To those who served before us and those who serve now and in the future. Thank you for all you do.

As the mother of an active duty soldier serving in Afghanistan… let me just say THANK YOU.
It means so much to me when people remember those who serve and who have served. It is because of them that we have the freedom to write on our blogs.
God bless the troops and their families… Thank you to all those who paid the ultimate price and praying for those who are still serving to come home safe and soon.
