In Honor of Veteran's Day and In Honour of Remembrance Day

A poem by Jack, age 10 Veterans fought to keep our country free Every day, for people like me! Today and tomorrow we can live in peace, Even in bad weather to fight they'll never cease! Ready in seconds, they'll fight and stand tall, And while they're cross-planet they're adored by us all! Not everyone is willing to fight, So veterans are full of power and might! and Veteran's/Remembrance Day wouldn't be the same without the old standby: In Flanders Fields 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. - John McCrae Thank you for your sacrifices members of the Armed Services.
