Happy Veterans Day

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.

Lt. Col. John McCrae, M.D., Canadian Army

Thank you to all of our veterans and their families for all of their sacrifices and service to our country to preserve our freedoms.  We salute you!

  3. What a lovely remembrance Pam. Have I said how nice your blog looks to firefoxers? It does!

    You asked about my camera, ask Santa for a Cannon EOS Rebel T1i, (now they have a T12). It comes with a standard lense and I bought a Cannon zoom, EF 75-300mm and a Sigma 50mm1:2.8 DG Macro., love it! Actually, I think I saw a great package at Costco recently.

    Hugs to you sweet friend!
