They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

For the Fallen, by Robert Laurence Binyon

Today we celebrate 100 years since the end of the First World War.

We will remember those who fought for peace.

Remembrance Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, to remember soldiers who fought in wars past and present. It originally started as a day to remember those who had died during the First World War and the date was set to coincide with the Armistice which was signed on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

This year marks the centenary of the Armistice and is being celebrated widely across the U.K. and the world. The poppy is a symbol of this day, thanks to the profusion of them growing on the First World War battlefields and Lieutenant-Colonel John Mc Crae’s famous poem,’In Flanders Fields’

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.
