Remembrance Day. Nothing to do with PR.

A reminder that the 11th hour of the 11th of November (the 11th month) is Remembrance Day.

In Flanders Fields 

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. 

– Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

  1. But it’s all about convincing young fools to die for a lie. DEATH to warmongers. Military people are fucking dumb, but if they want death I hope they get what’s coming to them.

  2. In that case, I hope you’re referring to the arms companies and business that backs them – not the men and women who serve in the Forces. The last people that want war are those in the Sevices.
