Remember

    Recommended Posts

    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.

     

    World War I : 994,138 Dead.

    World War II : 383,600 Dead.

    "The Troubles" : 711 Dead.

    The Falklands War : 285 Dead.

    First Gulf War : 24 Dead.

    Afghanistan War : 289 Dead. (And counting).

    Second Gulf War : 136 Dead.

     

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

    Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning

    We will remember them.
