The ceramic poppies on display at The Tower of London is quite remarkable, especially when you appreciate that every poppy symbolises a British or colonial serviceman or woman who died in the Great War. The sheer waste of human life becomes so alarmingly plain to see.

*happy remembrance day / veteran's day*

I served on 2 US Navy nuclear submarines during the Vietnam War. Spent 577 days underwater on 8 patrols. My mental escape from that tight, claustrophobic tube was dreaming of natural wonders like this. Helped me get thru those long patrols. I now am blessed to make up for those lost days by spending as much time as I can in beautiful scenery like this.

 

Wishing all Veterans a wonderful Veterans/Rememberance Day.

I salute you. Thank you!

This park commemorates citizens who have served to protect our freedom and security

 

"It is a beacon of remembrance for every Calgarian to look upon and reflect on the sacrifices of so many of our city's citizens so we can enjoy the fruits of freedom and prosperity," said Col. Roy Boehli of the 41st Canadian Brigade Group.

  

Remembrance Day...

Veterans Day - translation for my transatlantic friends

 

Ode of Remembrance

From Laurence Binyon's "For the Fallen"

 

They shall grow not old, as we that 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 will remember them.

Let us never forget.

 

My Grandad was only 16 but went and signed up to do his duty for his country (Actually in The Great War - 1915). He used to proudly tell me how the officer looked him up and down, (knowing he was underage) said "your'e a bit small for 17"...but then declared "You'll stop a bullet" and promptly took him in. Many of our men, were really still so young. Im glad he didnt stop a bullet, and that he went on to be the most amazing man who I loved dearly.

 

So whether you personally know someone or not, today remember all those brave soldiers who fought and especially those who lost their lives for our country.

 

Remember them.

Explored, thank you

  

To our soldiers of past and present, we thank you.

 

EXPLORED Thank you My Friends!

   

We Will Remember Them.

 

The First World War was hoped to be "the war to end all wars" but war and conflict have continued and today our Armed Forces are experiencing casualties almost every week.

 

They shall grow not old, as we that 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 will remember them.

What perspectives will Barrack Obama bring to the White House as World hopes for better?

Many service personnel were captured by the enemy and spent degrading time starving in custody before release. U.S. Marine pilot John McCain from Arizona is an example of doing well thereafter, but he, like us, never forgets the troops on the line doing the fighting. They need billions in prayers to match congressional budgets partially sent to the front after so many get a cut first.

 

Remember the P.O.W. veterans in your community and pray for those elsewhere for each suffered much for the U.S.A. before release, though many of their P.O.W. fellow travelers died in captivity. Each desires and deserves our thoughts and prayers on this the day to remember Veterans.

In Flanders fields the poppies grow

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 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.

My miniature Poppy enhanced.

 

Finally Flickr has let me add this, fortunately in time for the 11th November.

Couldn't think of anything creative, other than to get a quick shot with a poppy for Remembrance Day, as I was out doing things. Velvet obliged me.

 

I spent a moment in silence today with my daughter, as we thought about all the fallen soldiers and women who have served our countries.

 

Even Velvet stood still.

 

Swisharoo and I made the now annual visit to Solomon Creek.. To photograph the water features and structures along the stream in Ashley Borough. Finally got to explore building up above the Reservoir (a highlight of this visit)

  

On a bad / negative note, my Canon EOS T2i took a spill into the stream and isn't turning on... Hopefully I can salvage the battery grip and lens. (Update: The Canon survived... And I bought a 2nd Sony a6000 in late December 2014)

I'm reposting an image I took 4 years ago. First time I've ever done this - but thought it fit for today.

It reminds us that wars are often fought by our young people - so young to handle such a large experience.

 

Glancing back. A young lady standing with all the other "colours" at Brampton's remembrance ceremony.

Soldiers are no longer the old men and women, but also the young 20 year olds who have fought modern wars.

Lest we forget ... all the brave young men and women who have and are fighting in wars.

In honour of Rememberance Day and of Fall. This old fellow beckoned to me to memorialize him. I tried my best to do so. Processed in PicMonkey.

 

[RIP Sapper Eugene Gallant. My father-in-law spent his 21st birthday on D-Day, June 6, 1944. His unit was the 23rd Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers, who participated in a rescue mission during operation Market Garden.]

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.

In Flanders fields.

 

-- John McCrae

 

Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote this poem on May 3, 1915, after he witnessed the death of his friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, the day before.

Taking my nephew to the Aquarium.

"They shall grow not old, as we that 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 will remember them."

 

We will remember all .....

 

Sadly, due to the current intensive operations, the names of many young men and women are now being added to war memorials throughout the land.

 

We give thought also to the many who are injured but, due to the miracles of modern medicine, are increasingly surviving with horrific injuries.

 

So, on Remembrance Day, we remember these people as well as those from the two great wars.
