Remembering our Heroes on Memorial Day

Memorial Day: For remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.

And, by the way, it’s not about simply remembering on one day in May because those who have made the ultimate sacrifice as well as those who protect our way of life each and every day need to be in our hearts and minds 365 days a year!

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)

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.
