The Poppy of Remembrance

The last Monday in May
We pause to remember
All those who fought and fell
For freedom’s cause.
Let us never forget the price
that is paid for freedom.

The Red Poppy is a reminder of those who fought and fell in World War 1.
Read the immortal poem “In Flamders Fields” by Lt. Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
