In Flanders fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.We are the Dead. Short days agoWe 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 throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies growIn Flanders fields. 
Lest We Forget

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. 

Lest We Forget

Did you know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have fought for Australia in every war since Federation, even as early as the Boer War?Although not even counted as citizens of their own country, thousands of Indigenous Australians risked their lives to defend our nation. Today we remember the sacrifices service members have made to defend this land and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contributions are part of that history, and they, too, must be remembered, honoured and thanked.http://www.watoday.com.au/comment/our-black-history-lest-we-forget-aboriginal-veterans-20130423-2icn5.html

A truce on the Gallipoli Front, 24 May 1915 
Before long the corpses between the lines were rotting in the sun. A truce was arranged for 24 May 1915 to bury the dead, and Turk and Anzac met for the first time in no-man’s-land. Surveying the scene, a Turkish officer said to Anzac intelligence officer Captain Aubrey Herbert that “at this spectacle even the most gentle must feel savage and the most savage must weep.” (excerpt/image)

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.

Prince of Egypt (1998)

"Many nights we’ve prayed with no proof anyone could hear. In our hearts a hopeful song we barely understood. Now we are not afraid, although we know there’s much to fear. We were moving mountains long before we knew we could."
