Lest we forget …

As MacAulays we have many honourable and brave family members and friends, past, present and future, that have and will fight for our freedoms. May we never forget on today, November 11th, Remembrance Day.

And remember the words of John McCrae, the Canadian poet, doctor and soldier who wrote this iconic poem in the midst of war and personal grief

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.
