We will remember them.

Every year the nation unites to make sure that no-one is forgotten and to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

I found this picture today it certainly gave me a lump in my throat as i am sure it will others.

The poppy does not glorify war.
The poppy glorifies the ultimate sacrifice made by people for our freedom.
WEAR IT WITH PRIDE.

In Flanders Fields


By John McCrae



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.

We will remember them

Now let there be PEACE on earth

Remembrance Day is on 11th November here in UK, too - but Remembrance Services take place at cenotaphs across the country on Remembrance Sunday, which is the 2nd Sunday in November.
