In Flanders' Fields

Arguably the best-known Canadian poem ever written, "In Flanders' Field" by John McCrea was written very quickly, immediately following the interment of what was left of this Canadian army surgeon's best friend, crystallising a moment of grief and despair that was shared by all who were affected by the first world war. This is a summary of a small part of a very moving talk by Tim Cook, presented at the Toronto Reference Library last night, on McCrae and his war. May they all rest in peace.

I've seen then on etsy with all of the states and I just fell in love. Because Canada has a heck of a lot less provinces than the USA does states- I thought I'd start with Canada. My home sweet home! Enjoy this labour of LOVE... and share the love, M. They are in Alphabetical Order :) Oh yes, and there…

“Why Wear a Poppy?” – By Don Crawford

“Please wear a Poppy,” the lady said, And held one forth, but I shook my head, Then I stopped and watched as she offered them there, And her face was old and lined with care; But beneath the scars …

Quote of the Day: Terry Fox

I don’t feel that this is unfair. That’s the thing about cancer. I’m not the only one, it happens all the time to people. I’m not special. This just intensifies what I did. It gives it more meaning…
