It’s a Long Way to Tipperary…

Happy Veterans Day!

We wish you a Happy Veterans Day

We hope that you take a moment to remember those that have served in the name of freedom. This holiday is one of solemn remembrance as it’s the anniversary of the end of the First World War. We ask that you take a moment to remember all that have served and perhaps reach out to anyone close to you that is a Veteran. This holiday goes by many names: Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, National independence Day in Poland, and simply 11 November. No matter the name, the idea is the same – reflect on those that gave everything so we can enjoy peace and prosperity. It is important to remember the past and take a moment to reflect on our history and those that have shaped it.

To everyone that’s served, we thank you and want you to know you are in our hearts.

In Flanders Fields

A poem about the First World War by 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.
