Memorial Day 2011

´╗┐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
God bless our fallen patriots, those who have bravely served or are serving now, and their faithful families!

God Bless America

    Yvonne, this is the most perfect post anyone could make for Memorial Day. All of us owe such a deep depth of gratitude, respect, honor & love to our military and their families. God Bless the USA.

    Yvonne, you are so right, for every story we hear there are countless others of families that are grieving as we go about our daily lives. Your post today is right on!! I thought for sure I was a follower, but anyway, I am now. Have a great weekend!!
