Lest We Forget


Today we remember our dead from the only two wars that have done the most to aid us in the comfortable modern life we live.<br />
At the setting of the sun, we shall remember them.<br />

We cherish too, the Poppy red<br />
That grows on fields where valor led,<br />
It seems to signal to the skies<br />
That blood of heroes never dies<br />
The Great War ushered in the 20thCentury. <br />
It was &quot;The War To End All Wars,&quot;- a senseless slaughter that set the stage for the bloodiest century in human history.<br />
Yet, it was more than just a war between nations. It was a war between what was and what was to be. The &quot;old world&quot; was dying, and the new world had yet to be born. People of all classes and nations saw it as some great cleansing fire that would accelerate this battle and lead to a better world. But, when it was over, more than men had died in the mud of the battlefields. The naive dreams of progress, along with the innocence of the pre-war world, faith in God, and hope in the future all died in the trenches of Europe.<br />
