The Low Carb Diabetic: Remembrance 2020

The Low Carb Diabetic: Remembrance 2020


 

We will remember them, and say thank you to the brave men and women,

past and present who fight to preserve our freedoms.

Not only today Remembrance Sunday, 

We shall especially remember you at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

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.

After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.

In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write the now famous poem called ‘In Flanders Fields’.
