    11/11/11 - Lest We Forget - Thank you Veterans!

    Armistice Day
    Remembrance Day/Veterans Day


    Just want to say thank you to all veterans.



    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.

    That was beautiful I played with my HS band for the veterans and afterward I had the chance to meet a few. One lady who served the Air Corps during WW2 and she was the sweetest person you would ever meet I went to shake her hand and she pulled me into a hug and kissed me on my cheek then she asked if I was the son of the teacher I was talking too ha ha.
