Forever in our hearts their memory will light in us.
11 November 2020
Today was a special day as we commemorated remembrance day. It was a touching moment as the residents took turns to light candles with support from staff to remember families and friends who died in the war. A number of crosses painted by residents were also laid in our memory garden.
Residents listened attentively as various poems were read, like Flanders Fields by John McCrae which reads
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
