Remembrance Day – Thank-you Veterans

Tomorrow we pause at 11 a.m. to remember those who have given their lives to ensure the freedom of our country.

I’ve written before about the personal impact that the Canadian Veterans have on our law firm – but for liberating Holland at the end of WWII, there would be no firm.

Of course, as Canadians, we daily have the sacrifice of Veterans to thank for the freedoms we enjoy.

Thank-you Veterans, we literally owe you everything.

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army
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.
