Remembrance Day


In Flanders Fields
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

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.

Hey I'm a single catholic in my early early thirties in the US. It's nice to meet people who are like minded.It's hard to be religious and vocal about it or not be embarrassed about it (at least in my country and in my industry (the enterainment indusstry) but I'm not. I love being Catholic and it's vital to who I am.

I like you're blog!
