Remembrance Day...

Every November 11th, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), Remembrance Day
is the topic of discussion.

As you know, today is the day when we give honour and glory to those who gave themselves while they worked towards securing our freedom. 
 
As many of you know,
Dr. John McCrae
wrote a poem...
In Flanders' Fields

 
In Flanders' Fields
was written
May 3, 1915...
just over 100 years ago.
 
Yes, this is the centennial
of the poem that has been used in
Remembrance
of all who
gave themselves...
for us.
 
Here is a link to a
YouTube
video by
Royal Canadian Mint
entitled,
In Flanders Fields:
 
Even though the
Bible verse that I thought of
wasn't written regarding
our Remembrance Day,
I felt that it reminded me
of how we need to remember...
lest we forget.
 
Exodus 12:14,
"And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever."
 
Yes,
November 11th
of every year, will be unto me
and hopefully to you,
a day of remembrance
of those
who fought for
our freedom.
And, a time
to give thanks
to those who do,
today.
 
May God bless each person who gave of themselves.
Especially, those who gave their lives.
 
 
 
Until next time...
