On this 2020 Remembrance Day / Veterans Day we find ourselves in an unfamiliar position: we did not come together as a team of veterans, standing shoulder to shoulder in remembrance and competing in the Race of Remembrance on the other side of the pond. As a 2020 compromise we hosted a well received and successful iRace of Remembrance on Sunday, November 8th. Even though our pre race was a recorded message instead of live, it contained heartfelt messages and moments where we were able to honor our fallen. All safe in our own homes, we were still able to come together for a common goal.
Lest we Forget.
We will remember them.
In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. According to legend, fellow soldiers retrieved the poem after McCrae, initially dissatisfied with his work, discarded it. "In Flanders Fields" was first published on December 8 of that year in the London magazine Punch.

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.
Thank you Veterans
