Honouring Remembrance Day 🌺

We all need to recognize and be grateful to all our veterans for all their faithful dedication and service to their countries whether here in Canada or any other country globally. These courageous heroes risk everything on the battlefield so we may all have our freedoms and liberties at home β€” hence they deserve our full unreserved respect.

The following video was shot in Cologne, Germany in 2018 for the 100 year Armistice comemmorating the anniversary of the end of World War I ! It was quite a spiritual experience being there and seeing this modern day audio-visual creation projected onto the formidable KΓΆlner Dom Cathedral in downtown Cologne which was all decimated at the end of the war. The remarkable thing to observe is that while the whole city was in ruins, this majestic gothic home of worship was the only thing left standing, it was as if the allies left this for the people here as a symbol of hope !

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.
John McCrae
