One Hundred Years Ago
On November 11, 1918, the guns fell silent in war-torn Europe. At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect, ending major hostilities of World War I, “the war to end all wars.” November 11 was known as Armistice Day until 1954, when the observance was renamed Veterans Day to remember and thank all who have served in the U.S. armed forces.
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.
Written in 1915, during the First World War, by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.
