Remembering at Aurora War Memorial Peace Park, 2015

-

Moments captured during Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Aurora War Memorial Peace Park on Sunday November 8th, 2015. Unless November 11th falls on a Sunday we have two Remembrance ceremonies. One on Sunday for those who are not available during the week and one at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of every year.

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.

Major John McCrae
