Remember the Fallen

Remember the Fallen

Without those who fought for our freedom, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy all that we have to offer here in Niagara Falls. Soldiers who stood up against tyranny and oppression are the foundation of all we take for granted today, the freedom to choose where we go and what we do, the freedom to share ideas and speak publicly, the freedom to vote.

On Remembrance Day, we honour the sacrifice.

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.
— Lt. Col. John MacRae, 1919

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we will remember.
