We Remember

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.

4 They're about 150 miles NW of me. I'm so far south, we're almost Kentucky/West Virginia.

5 I was there for a conference last year--what an awesome people. Slaughter said, "We should never build any building that future generations could not easily sell for another use if that is what God led them to do." That blew me away. You coming to SBC in Greensboro?
