Lest We Forget
This Remembrance Day, who will you remember?
About this creation

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.

Forth Wall Commentary: Lest We Forget. Also, this is my 50th MOC!

:D Never mind, thanks to the internet, I have become enlightened on this subject. Again, a fine memorial.

Very pretty, besides the dead man of course. I may sound daft wondering this, or maybe it's a religious thing, but what is Flanders' Fields? Because the first thing I think of when I hear "Flanders" is the Simpsons. Anyways, a very nice remembrance creation, great work!

Flowers and water on the bottom kind of take away a little of it. Really water only was there when it was raining, and it would absorb into the dead bodies and dirt quickly (one or two days). Flowers of course would be burned and destroyed right before or at the begging of a battle/months of trench taking. Anyway, good message none the less, so I salute those who have served/serving [My Dad was in the Navy on subs and in the Gulf War, My Great Grandfather was in WWII (Famous battles, Battle of the Bulge, he was in the Rhineland among other things). He received a Bronze Star for his actions between April and May 1945. He was a Sergeant and in The 25th Armored Engineer Corps C Company. He Died in the 80's. My Uncle is serving in Iraq or Afghanistan right now(Army), my Great uncle was in the Air Force; He was a meteorologist for the Air Force. I think he went over seas I'm not certain.]. There could be others from my family before the parts of my family came to America, so they should be remembered also. We should also remember everyone that has served alongside the U.S. and in the U.S. Armed Forces, not just those we are related to or are close to. May whatever god/force that these men and women that served/serving believe in bless them. Thank you Veterans for protecting Peace, Justice, and Freedom. A quote by (I think) F.D.R. "Freedom is not Free. Every generation must pay for it."

A famous poem, perfect for remembering the brave men and women who have fought for us. I know several veterans - fortunately all still living - personally. They have earned our thanks well.

I highly doubt any flowers were left when the trench war got serious, but I appreciate the symbolism. I love a good trench MOC.
