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.


crosses_poppies.gif (7232 bytes)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.

by John McCrae

 

 

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!  More than 40 million American men and women have served our nation to defend freedom.  More than One Million of them paid the ultimate price, purchasing our right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" at the loss of their own.  It is here that we honor them, and remember what they have given that we might live in peace and prosperity.
