    "They shall not grow old,
    As we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them,
    Nor the years condemn,
    At the going down of the sun
    And in the morning
    We will remember them"

    PEACE

    "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."

    Hi Tommy,

    These poems are not mine !

    11 November:
    USA: Veteran's Day
    Canada: Remembrance Day
    UK: Remembrance Day
    Belgium, France: "Wapenstilstandsdag" 1918

    There are more days to remember

    May we all remember those who gave their life and those who suffered so much

    May there come one day we may live in peace

    Thankyou for the post.
    So much loss.
    Some of my family tree ended in Flanders.

    As we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them,
    Nor the years condemn,
    At the going down of the sun
    And in the morning
    We will remember them"


    We must never forget.
    Regards.
    Longboard.

    My hat is off and my heart is heavy for those who served before me and with me never to return. God bless

    May we remember those not only on the 11th of November, but every day of our lives. :) I spent this day (The 11th of November), which coincidently is also my birthday with vets as I do every year. Sadly; it's becoming unimportant to the younger generations ... when we forget history, we're bound to repeat it. :'(

    Peace to all ... Remember the sacrifice of our fore fathers, both fallen and the living ... and we shall never have to relive that horror again --- 3 strikes and you're out - The next, may; and likely will be, our last. Honour and remember those that fought; so we may never forget.

    Salute :cool:
