President’s Message – November 2019

OAHI Remembrance Day 2019_epIn Canada November is typically a time of Remembrance: Remembrance Day is Nov. 11. It’s a time to reflect on the sacrifices— in countless cases the ultimate sacrifice— our military service people have made for us, for our freedoms. It’s also a time, but not the only occasion to thank our war vets for all they have done for us.

According to the Canadian War Museum’s website: “Remembrance Day occurs in Canada each November 11. It is a day of national commemoration for the more than 118,000 Canadians who have died in military service. The costs for Canada, with its relatively small population, have been substantial.”

Wear your poppy with pride.

In Flanders Fields

By John McCrae

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.

Here is some more information about Remembrance Day.
