Memorial Day 2013: For Our Men and Women in Uniform


Sacrifice is a part of life. It's supposed to be.
It's not something to regret. It's something to aspire to.
~ Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

emembering all our men and women in uniform and their families today.  If you see one of them today, take a minute and thank them for their service.   They sacrifice a lot so we don’t have to.
Uncle R and Cousin JW ~ love ya’ll!

Oremus pro invicem,~ Mikaela

 

 

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae 
 

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.
