Happy Remembrance Day!

Standard

Today is the day we honour all the solders, and people who served for out country, and fought for our freedom. On the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour of the 11th minute, World War 2 ended, and we celebrate, and remember.

We sing the national anthem of our country, and stand for a moment of silent reflection. We wear our poppies to show respect. It is important that we remember the sacrifices that people made for us, and our rights. So wear your poppies, and say thank you.

This is the song/poem by John McCrae, about Flanders Field, that a lot of people sing on remembrance day.

In Flanders Field

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.

John McCrae
