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.

— Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 - 1918)

Let us pray for peace

Remembering this nation's veterans today, a little more than usual. Thank you all for your service and God grant us peace in our time.

To paraphrase Christian scripture (hey, I know a good line when I see it), to you my multi-colored friend and all who have served in places near and far, during peace and during conflict - Well done you good and faithful servants.
