The Remembrance Day

As 11 horas e 11 minutos do dia 11 de novembro, o Reino Unido inteiro para por dois minutos para celebrar o FIM e  lembrar as vitimas da I Grande Guerra Mundial.

Esse eh o simblo que se ve na lapela dos casacos durante todo o tempo, eles comecam a usar a Poppy no fim do mes de Outubro e so tiram depois da data.

Ao lado a foto da Poppy na lapela do meu casaco.

Segue meu Poema favorito da epoca da Guerra, escrito pelo canadense:  John McCrae.

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.
