Cheers and Jeers – NOV 11

It’s Friday. So we close out the "Week That Was" with our latest volume of Cheers and Jeers.

This week, we say Thank You and nothing more.

CHEERS to all of the brave and selfless men and women who have fought for Canada over the years. Your valour, bravery and sacrifice will never be forgotten.

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.
