Here in the United States, we honor all who sacrificed their lives or returned home injured from war and dedicate a day, Memorial Day, each May, to honor them. There are parades and ceremonies at cemeteries and parks, national tributes and prayers in houses of worship.
The poem, In Flanders Field, was written by Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian First Brigade Artillery in December, 1915 in Flanders Fields. Information on the poem can be found by clicking on the link above.
May you have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day as we remember all the men and women who have made the greatest of sacrifices.
