100 years ago, Remember them.

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.

Standing at Vimy Ridge today, really brings it home what those brave souls did for those they would likely never see again.

I will remember them and all those who followed to try and make a better world.

At no point in history have so many died for so little. The dead counted in futures lost per meter. One hundred years ago the guns went silent but the cries of those lost still heard for years to come.

I'll be heading to the cenotaph in a bit for the ceremonies.

Thank you sir. We must remember the past so we are aware of the future.
