Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day 


the sacrifices that Canadians

made in armed conflicts

including World Wars I and II

The use of the poppy

as a symbol of remembrance

comes from a poem written by John McCrae

a Canadian doctor serving in the military

The poem is called

In Flanders Fields

and describes the poppies

growing in the Flemish graveyards

where soldiers were buried

Where will you be at 11:00am today?

We will observe two minutes of silence

at my workplace

Lest We Forget

Big Hugs
