|It would be a breath-taking sight|
to see in person!
The day World War I ended in 1918.
At 11:00am on November 11, we all stood and said the Pledge to Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.
|Yes....that's me ...|
the last on the right on the second row...
in the"plaid dress with white collar"!
|The words "under God" |
were not added until 1954
during the Presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower
|We now wear buy them|
from a Veteran and wear them on
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
