Remembering

   Tomorrow is Rememberance Day and many of us tend to forget.

      War these days is for many different reasons, protecting our oil supply, fighting terrorists, and other issues that do not directly concern us . The wars that we usually commemorate on Rememberance Day , are usually World War One and World War Two. Those wars were fought to free us from tyranny and to stop madmen from taking over the world. I am generally anti-war but if some guy like Hitler was marching all over Europe I am not sure, I would remain anti-war. Basically if we have the freedom that we have today, it is due to the people that fought those wars.

   So tomorrow in memory of what they did, try to honor the , two minutes’ of silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month . Two minutes one a year is not much, to rememeber people that gave their lives.

A Traditional Rememberance Day Poem

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.
Author  John McCrae 1915
