Lest We Forget - Flanders Fields - 100th Anniversary

 A new Edmonton park commemorates the 100th anniversary of Lt.-Col. John McCrae's legendary poem, In Flanders Fields.

McCrae assembled his iconic verses while under heavy artillery fire in Belgium during World War One.

"He sat down and penned this poem in the middle of incredible fighting, endless fighting;
the shelling never stopped during that battle."

Thank you to those in my family who have served.
