Remembrance Day

Today marks Remembrance Day, formerly Armistice day, in Canada and the Commonwealth, America calls it Veterans Day. This day memorializes the end of the of the First World War in 1918. Go to a cenotaph, watch or listen to the National service, thank a veteran. And do not even consider wearing a white poppy today.

You should listen to the Canadian band, The Trews, play Highway of Heroes this afternoon.

We’re also going to remind everyone to read In Flanders Fields, especially if you haven’t read it since grade school.

Flanders Fields Poem

Flanders Fields care of Australia’s Department of Veterans Affairs

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
