I lurk much better than I post - and my lurking skills really suck.

Remembrance Day/Poppy Day/Armistice Day/Veteran’s day

Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918… a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians on both sides.


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.

— Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 – 1918)

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

Posting in case— No, I can’t do it.

My father was a vet, my father-in-law was a vet, my grandfather couldn’t be a vet so he served on the homefront, and more.

So a hearty salute to them and all others who served their country.

Selfish fine upstanding member of society

My great grandfather was pretty amazing – if I remember rightly (I would have heard this when I was quite young, so I’m not 100% certain) he fought in, and survived, both World Wars. Stayed healthy and active right up to his last moments, then quietly pbumed away when he sat down to catch his breath after coming in from the shops (or something similar).

Has to be said, if there’s any good way to die then that’s the one. No drawn out illness or pain, just take a quick nap but don’t wake up.

I don’t really have an emotional connection to anyone who died in the wars, so Remembrance events (minute silences and the like) always feel a little awkward for me. I think it’s only respectful to be grateful for those who fought, and those who died, for our freedom… on the other hand it can be hard to decouple respect for the dead from glorifying war – there should be equal respect given to the survivors, but the focus is too often on the “heroes of war”, when war is really no place to look for glory.

... and if there’s a peen, that’d be cool too. Just saying.

I lurk much better than I post - and my lurking skills really suck.

Until very recently I used to teach at a grade school, and I was always in charge of organising the Remembrance Day ceremony… ‘One Tin Soldier’ sung by the Grade 5 chorus was always a staple. Never a dry eye in the house.

Upped the D’aww factor, just ‘cause.

Listen, children, to a story

That was written long ago,

‘Bout a kingdom on a mountain

And the valley-folk below.


On the mountain was a treasure

Buried deep beneath the stone,

And the valley-people swore

They’d have it for their very own.


So the people of the valley

Sent a message up the hill,

Asking for the buried treasure,

Tons of gold for which they’d kill.


Came an answer from the kingdom,

“With our brothers we will share

All the secrets of our mountain,

All the riches buried there.”


Now the valley cried with anger,

“Mount your horses! Draw your sword!”

And they killed the mountain-people,

So they won their just reward.


Now they stood beside the treasure,

On the mountain, dark and red.

Turned the stone and looked beneath it…

“Peace on Earth” was all it said.


Go ahead and hate your neighbor,

Go ahead and cheat a friend.

Do it in the name of Heaven,

You can justify it in the end.

There won’t be any trumpets blowing

Come the judgement day,

On the bloody morning after….

One tin soldier rides away.

Qui est cette chienne

Lot’s of my grand relatives died in a WWII. My grand-grand dad was a guerrilla fighter. The other grand-dad nearly died and this experience affected him for the whole life. And some of my best friends died too or got permanent mental disorders in modern military incidents. One of them, really great guy and a good friend, served in Angola and Bosnia as a sniper. When he got back, he was totally unable to communicate. When we tried to comfort him, he went screaming and talking about exploding heads in optic visor he keeps seeing every day in his nightmares. He spent year or so all alone, and when he couldn’t deal with it anymore, he volunteered to Chechnya. He was killed after a week or so.

War is a terrible thing and has nothing to do festive celebrations, parades and fireworks or solemn threads. Please, don’t talk about war. Remember those who died, never enlist in military and vote the most pacifist politics you can. That’s pretty much all you can do for those, who died.

not talking about it is a very unwise thing imo. not glorifying is maybe a more appropriate thing to say. neglecting the past will lead to repeating history in the future.

Happiness cannot be bought, but Crispers can.

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.
