Between the crosses, row on row...

There are few things that COVID-19 has not affected; Remembrance Day included. While in person ceremonies this year will be significantly smaller by necessity, virtual participation can be larger than ever. On Wednesday we take time to pay tribute and honour our veterans and their sacrifices.
O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish, and those whose names we will never know. As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life and hope, now and for ever. Amen.
The Legion Magazine and Leonard Cohen in the fall of 2015 released the following video to commemorate at that time the 100th anniversary of the poem In Flanders Fields by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.
In Flanders Fields
By John McCrae
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
In Flanders fields.
