Lest We Forget

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.
- John McCrae

Today I wanted to say THANK YOU

Thank you to all of the brave men and women who joined the military, left their families behind and fought many wars to protect their country and all those who live there. 

Thank you to all those who continue to join and fight for people who cannot fight for themselves. 

Thank you for making the world a better place for me to raise my daughter. Thank you for giving her the opportunity to grow up in a world where she can be free and happy.

Thank you to those who died and those who lived, you will always be remembered.
