Lest We Forget! Remembrance Day.

In Flanders fields the poppies grow,
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.

Today we are honoring the memory and military service of brave soldiers who fight and fought for peace! Risking their lives, so we can live in peace is the biggest act of bravery! I can only imagine how difficult it can and was for soldiers to go through this on a daily basis. Your bravery hasn’t gone unnoticed and thank you for everything you’ve done in the past and present. I’m also remembering my grandfather who was a veteran in the WWII! I would always listen to his soldier stories as a child and he was and still is my hero!

Call me crazy, but I imagine a world without violence, without people being killed for nothing. Despite what happens today, I will continue to believe that one day the world will be peaceful. As John Lennon sang, I imagine all the people sharing the world!

Thank you for reading and see you soon!
