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.

- John McCrae

 
The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them.

- Laurence Binyon

Remembrance Day isn't just about war and who we've lost, but it's also about values and traditions of freedom and morality, upholding them for generations to come, and preserving them as intrinsic elements of our culture, heritage, and history.
