We Will Remember Them by Kezzi-Rose We Will Remember Them by Kezzi-Rose
:iconpoppyplz:
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.
In Flanders Fields -- John McCrae

This is a piece submitted slightly late for Remembrance Day; but, regardless of the date, I feel we should never forget the sacrifices brave soldiers have made so that we can live the lives we do today.

Thanks for all your :+fav:s & comments ♥

Hi! I am not 100% sure, but I suppose so. The poppy is an iconic symbol originating from WW1 when poppies bloomed across the battlefields following the fights, so are a symbol of peacetime and remembrance of those involved in war. Because of that I imagine it would still be fitting for Veterans Day. c:

I love how all of your photography has a sort of blurry sheen or film over it. Is that a setting on your camera, or do you make it with a program on the computer?

When you go home, tell them of us and say, "For your tomorrow, we gave our today."

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old, age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. at the going down of the Sun and in the morning, we shall remember them....



It made me sad that so many people at school did not wear a poppy and that the Welsh rugby team, at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, continued training whilst the rest of Britain and much of the world stood still to remember those who had died in battle. :(

Awesome, we shouldn't forget them. I wore a poppy all of the week, even though Remembrance Day was on the Wednesday, people kept asking why and I said "Why should Remembrance Day be the only day to remember?"
