John McCrae’s poem- 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”.

That’s John McCrae’s famous poem. For that we all trust on, and is still famous, throughout these centuries. The History Channel may have did a TV documentary movie once on TV like how “War Game” was, but TV programs will deal with Remembrance Day specials. Especially movies too that they won’t forget. Such as “War Horse”, “Saving Private Ryan”, “Band of Brothers”, that TV series perhaps, and what are good for Remembrance Day. To our Canadian war veterans.
