Memorial Day

Honor & Remember

On this Memorial Day, we honor and remember the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Here’s a poem, written by a doctor tending the wounded, in the aftermath of one of the bloodiest wars in modern history.

In Flanders Fields


In Flanders fields the poppies grow

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.
