The Importance of Remembering
In the blog post Remembering Our Veterans, Ron Oakley of Ottawa, sent in a beautiful poem that was a response to In Flanders Fields. Here is the original article, "Faded photographs: the importance of memory," that appeared in the Ottawa Citizen, November 8, 1986 on page B3, where he came across the poem.
