Nice information. Why don't you create special section for this, so other people will also add the day history.

Phil, why don't you create a "special" section for this?

"Special" section created - the offending spammish sig has been sent to the same section as all the others.

Here... http://raybradburyboard.com/ev...607060016#9607060016

I recall memorizing this timeless poem as an elementary school student, maybe grade 6 or 7; and now, so many years later, still I recall "these verses" (especially) and their images whenever there is a mere mention of the title or when I am pondering military heroes that have paid the ultimate price:

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
... Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place...

If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields."

Here in the Great White North, November 11th is Remembrance Day. The poem, "In Flanders Fields" was written by a Canadian poet/physician, John Mcrae. He was born in Guelph, Ontario.

In Canada, reciting that poem is part of Rembrance Day activities for school children. Like thousands of school children, I too memorized the words to Mcrae's moving poem.
