A day of remembrance

Today in the United States we celebrate Memorial day which is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nations service.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
 
Moina Michael
inspired by the poem In Flanders Field


Wishing you all a safe and Happy Memorial Day and to those of you outside of the U.S. happy Monday.
