In Flanders Fields


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.

Written by Lt-Colonel John McRae (1915)

Fall Back 2018

It’s that time of year again, time to set the clocks back to Standard time. You don’t have to do it if you’re in Puerto Rico, Arizona, or Hawaii because they don’t switch to Daylight Saving Time in the first place.

Fall Back to Standard Time 11/4/18 @ 2am
