The Fallen

Written and Submitted by Sherri-Ann Deschamps

the fallen

As we stand where Thee rest,
We place a hand upon our chest
Honouring the very Best.
For our Country you did fight,
Strong & Brave with all your might.
Peace & Freedom was your goal,
We thank you from our very soul.
These beautiful poppys we have grown,
We picked and placed upon your stone.
In love memory of your lives,
Dear Husbands, Sons, Daughters, Wives.
Now we bow our heads and Pray,
On this Remembrance Day!

The Salvation Army's annual Remembrance Day Service is at 11:00 am on November 11th, at the Cenotaph in Fenelon Falls. This November 11th marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1.
