Remembrance Day (11:11 11/11/11)

Well back in November 11, 1918, the Great War of Empires (also known as the First World War or if you still didn't get it: World War I) ended at the 11th hour (11:00 AM) of that day. Today (93 years since that day), of course, at the time of the posting of this entry is the 11:11 11/11/11. We should remember and honor those men who fought and died for their respective Flags and Countries in the First and Second World Wars.

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, 3 May 1915



Let us also remember and pray those who are (right now) away from their love ones.



This video is overwhelmingly touching and it will surely make you burst into tears..
