Today, November 11th, is Remembrance Day (Canada/Britain) / Veterans' Day (United States). It is a day to remember the hero's who fought and died (and who are fighting and dying) for our freedom. Please take a moment today to remember them in your prayers and hope that one day there will be no more need for war. I have included a copy of <i>In Flanders Field</i> below along with a picture I made that you are welcome to use as a display pic or whatever.
<B>In Flanders Fields</B>
<I>By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army</I>

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.
