Let Us Never Forget

In the Eleventh month, on the Eleventh Day, at the Eleventh Hour we will with dignity and honor, remember their sacrifice in the universal fight for Freedom! 

Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Canada

London Tower Moat, London, England

The Stone of Remembrance, Arnhem, Oosterbeek Cemetery, The Netherlands

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
