Lest We Forget: Remembrance Day

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.


Take a moment from your day to remember the brave men and women who gave their lives so we could live in freedom.

My grandfather planned to be a pilot but when he was asked to take on this position, he accepted because he knew they were running out of men for this job.
Teach even young kids the importance and meaning of Remembrance Day with this simple poppy craft.

Daily Inspiration: One person CAN make a big difference.
A lesson in how our children are never too young to learn about the sacrifices people have made for our country.

Letting our troops know we appreciate them.
For every man and woman who has given us the freedoms that we so often take for granted, each year on Nov 11th, I acknowledge their sacrifices and give thanks.
This November 11th I urge you to cast your mind beyond your own backyard and preconceptions to remember the children whose lives are ravaged by war.
Kid activity to honour our troops.
