remember to remember...

Just a quick note, tomorrow is Remembrance Day, for anyone that has the day off please take the time to go to a ceremony in your neighbourhood. I know this post is going to sound a little preachy, but this is something I feel very strongly about. The weather in Toronto is supposed to be lovely, take the time to stand with the remaining veterans and think about the men and women still in service, and those that we have lost along the way. If you can not get the time off work, please make sure to take a moment of silence, one minute out of a year to remember.

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.
