11th Hour, 11th Day, 11th Month

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.

-John McCrae

On this day, Canadians pay tribute to the many men and women that died for the country by having a 2 minute silence.

http://www.quebec-outfitters.net/deerhorn/usa_canada_flag.gifIn the US, this day is called Veterans Day. http://www.quebec-outfitters.net/deerhorn/usa_canada_flag.gif

Nove
mber 11th also marks the end of World War One, The War To End All Wars. At exactly 11 AM, an armistice was declared ending the four year war that killed nearly 10 million soldiers and caused a great destruction of Europe.

For Canadians, the two most famous battles in World War One were the Battle of Yypres, and Vimy Ridge.

http://www.virtuallandmedia.com/images/canada4.gifBattle Of Yypres in France was the first time Canadian soldiers proved themselves to be very "courageous". The Germans used gas as an attack on the Triple Entante [Russia-at that time, France & Britain]. While the French and British soldiers fled to save their lives, Canadians were the only ones who strategically came up with a method to protect themselves from the gas and went on. http://www.virtuallandmedia.com/images/canada4.gif
http://www.virtuallandmedia.com/images/canada4.gifThe Battle at Vimy Ridge was a famous battle for Canadians because it was the first time Canadian troops fought under a Canadian commander. Before this, it had always been a British commander hence Canadians felt themselves to be a part of the British army. This battle was the first time Canadian troops developed the sense of being part of a Canadian army.

This war gave Canada control over its own foreign policy which had been controlled by Britain before.

Heres to all the war veterans past and present! We truly thank you for the services you have provided to our great country. To all the men and women who are in the war zones right now or are in the army we all appreciate the handwork and effort you put on a daily basis!

Thank you very much! 

Every time I hear this poem it gives me goosebumps.

 by John McCrae, May 1915

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
.

This is a wonderful tribute for all the men and women that sacrificed their lives.
