Remembrance Day

If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, 
though poppies grow in Flanders Fields

The haunting words of Canadian Lt.-Col. John McCrae were never more powerful than today.
He penned them to conclude his epic poem, In Flanders Fields, shortly before his death near the end of the First World War.

Sadly, only a handful of veterans fo the Great War remain with us. Those who served in the Second World War and Korean War are not far behind. So it falls upon us and our children to tell the story and remember ……

To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high

McCrae was writing those words for future generations.
And it must be within our moral compass to give them voice and heart.
