"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. " Quote By _ John McCrae (Flanders Fields) on the eleventh month, on the eleventh day, at the eleventh hour under a blue hazy sky in my city we honored those who answered the call and died for the peace and freedom that we enjoy today we have a beautiful war monument and statue and a tomb of the unknown soldier that we treasure everyday not just on November eleventh all the wars are engraved in stone World War I, World War II, The Korean War, Afghanistan and it honors the peacekeepers who lost their life's also the sound of the bands, the parade of branches of the military the 21-gun salute, and the jet fly over, and the choir singing the pipers and trumpet, breaks the silence of those standing tall and when it is over everyone removes their poppies and places them on the tomb of the unknown soldier like red tears cascading ____________________ November 11, 2022 Submitted to the contest, 2022 Poetry Marathon, Mile 25 sponsor, Mark Toney

Joe, thank you so much for the visit, comment and congratulations, appreciate. I am against war also but I suppose the world must stop evil from invading and the brave are ready to do just that. Sadly, though I entered my poem in Brian Strand's contest, he did not place it for whatever reason.

Rico, thank you so much for the visit and comment, appreciate. I noticed that the minute of silence this year seemed to go on and on. In the heart of the city with traffic noises and city hustle, you could have heard a pin drop, it made me want to weep.

We stand on the shoulders of spiritual giants, many who made the ultimate sacrifice so we would have firmness and character to build upon and unite under one loving God in the name of World Freedom. Beautiful tribute!! Thank you.
