In Flanders Fields: Remembrance Day

In Flanders Field, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.

This coming weekend (Monday) the country will celebrate Remembrance Day, to honour the war veterans who fought and died, especially in the First and Second World Wars.  Canadians fought very hard in both wars, and many were killed.  You can see many people wearing the red poppy on their coats at this time of year, and it represents the overseas graveyards where many of the soldiers were buried.  The story about this poem is an interesting one.
