Events on Campus: Remembrance Day Ceremony

 

 

Lest We Forget.

By John McCrae, May 1915

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.

On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour, we all pause as a country to remember and give thanks to the men and women who gave their life for our country. We make a donation to the Royal Canadian Legion to wear a poppy, as a symbol of respect, thanks and remembrance.

We remember our Grandparents, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, siblings and friends who answered the call of their country. We give thanks to the ones who made it back home, and mourn the ones who made the ultimate sacrifice.

To those in active duty who continue to fight for Canada, and those who are present at Remembrance Day Ceremonies all across the country; from the students, faculty and staff at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology; we thank you for your sacrifice and we will remember them.
