Lest We Forget

Remembering our servicemen past and present for making the supreme sacrifice while upholding Canadian beliefs and values far from home and protecting our nation. Thank you and may us as a nation never forget and always remember these  brave men and women sacrifices  and  so we can fully appreciate our servicemen past and present for their dedication to Canada and  for upholding Canadian beliefs and values far from home and protecting our nation, and may God rest their souls. May we also offer our condolences to those families who have lost family members in combat and will have to deal  with the grief of  losing a family member.

John McCrae”s poem “In Flanders Fields”

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.
