It is Remembrance Day today and this is the time we remember and appreciate what our veterans have done and are still doing to keep us safe, to keep us free and keep us healthy. I am not going to go too deep into this topic but most us have heard the incredible stories from our peers, siblings, grandparents and so on about the great pain that is involved with war. Let us not forgot the sacrifice these men and women have done for us.
Our children now are the first generation ever to have a life expectancy shorter then their parents. With all the processed and GMO foods sneaking into our grocery stores, over sprayed veggies and fruits and hormone rich meat no wonder these poor babies don’t have a chance. They eat more then ever but are still nutrient deficient. (have a lot of food in the stomach but the bodies cells are hungry for nutrients) Our veterans didn't fight for this country for us not to appreciate ourselves enough to not take care of ourselves. We are not in war in Canada but with most of our lifestyles we are in a state of stress and running our adrenals to death. We need to take care of ourselves better, demand better foods in our food supply, and get the proper educators into our schools to teach our children about nutrition (although it should start in the home). We need to slow down and remember this is a great country and our children are our future… and hopefully a long future indeed.
In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915
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.
