Tomorrow is the “Remembrance Day”. November 11 marks down the last day of World War I when Germans signed the Armistice treaty. Remembrance day is also called the Veterans day to remember all those who got wounded, or risked or lost their lives to protect their countries and/or beliefs.
As a not-so-brave person I always admire those who are ready to sacrifice all they have to offer, for their country or beliefs. Canadian veterans fall into this category. The world owes its peace in the First World War to Canadians. They have also played a significant and important role in World War II and some other wars such as the ongoing war in Afghanistan. As you know we are far far away from all these incidents. It takes courage and determination to leave your comfort zone and fight for those whom you could easily ignore.
Ignorance is not what a Canadian made of. The Canadian veterans make me proud. So kudos to them and all who work hard to bring peace to the earth. I wish from the bottom of my heart for a peaceful world in the near future.
To close this thought and to remember Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae I present to you the well-known touching poem “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…
