Memorial Day Sale

Memorial Day

Memorial day is celebrated every year on the last Monday of May, on this day we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and their families.  Today I want to share with you this poem by Moina Michael (1869-1944)

We Shall Keep the Faith

 Oh! you who sleep in Flanders Fields,  
Sleep sweet – to rise anew!  
We caught the torch you threw  
And holding high, we keep the Faith  
With All who died.  

We cherish, too, the poppy red
 That grows on fields where valor led;
 It seems to signal to the skies
 That blood of heroes never dies, 
But lends a lustre to the red
 Of the flower that blooms above the dead  In Flanders Fields.

 And now the Torch and Poppy Red
 We wear in honor of our dead.  
Fear not that ye have died for naught; 
 We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought
 In Flanders Fields. 
In Flanders Fields we fought
