Remembrance Day 11/11/11

Never Forget
In Flanders Fields
by: Lieutenant Colonel 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.


In other completely unrelated news, I'm leaving Sunday morning for a week-long vacation to St. Lucia. I've prepared some posts to go up next week though. I'll miss reading my blog roll while I'm gone, but I sure won't miss the weather! Have a great weekend!
