Nov 11 "Lest We Forget"

   By BluPheonix at 6:31 AM

It's November 11, and here in Canada it is rememberance day. I'm not sure if you have Nov 11, marked as a day of rememberance. You do have veterans day, so I'm sure it's the same thing. Anyway, what I want to touch on right now is the highly probable draft that president bunnypants will be putting into effect. Now my money is on sometime in February, mabey the 10th?!....
Well with things getting worse in Iraq, and Iran, and the elusive OBL still hiding in a "cave"(haha). You look me straight in the eyes and tell me you honestly don't think there will be a draft, and I'll sell you a piece of prime realestate in iraq! I can't be drafted, obvious reason being, um, I'm Canadian. But some of you reading this might have to go and fight, not for WMD's, Not for freedom, but for oil. The last legetimate war the U.S fought was WWII, and don't it seem like america is ALWAYS at war with someone-somewhere. So, that being said, I want you to all make a promise to me, and call a VET, and thank them for their service. Especialy the WWII vets,because they are the ones who fought for a REAL cause. Show some respect and appreciation, mabey go to your local legion, and bring some beers, or some homebaked goods. Do SOMTHING, they deserve it. After all, we owe them our freedom, and our thanks, and mabey just mabey, when you come back from the war the next generation will thank you for your service. I would like to end with a poem.
In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

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.
