A Moment ~

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 up high
If ye break faith with us, who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

John McCrae

Good morning my friends ~ I hope you all enjoy your Sunday, but please ~

take a moment of your time to remember all war heroes of past and present ~ U.S.A. and Canada and say a prayer for our troops.

Thank you
