Lest We Forget!

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.

Remembrance Day

Happy Remembrance Day, today we celebrate the bravery of soldiers who fought in the two world wars and current wars. Thank you for risking your lives to protect us, your bravery is and was amazing.

It saddens me to see that violence still exists today, wars are ongoing and it only creates more damage and tragedy. Humanity should be advancing, not regressing by being more violent. People should have learned their lesson from the past, because the past taught us what not to do. However, it seems that now the answer is to answer violence with violence. No, that is not the way, peace can easily exist if people try hard enough.

Peace over violence always! We don’t want to lose anymore people because of wars!

Lest We Forget♥
