Veteran's Day (US) / Remembrance Day (UK)

I thought this clip would be up on YouTube dozens of times, but there were only two! Apologies for the annoying fuzzy text over about 30 seconds near the end -- my only other option was the BBC's official clip, but they cut it short so it ends before the fade-in of the field of poppies. Which is, you know, kind of necessary for the full impact.




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...

Still one of the best and most effective TV moments I've ever seen and perfect for today. Thank you.

I'll never forget the first time I saw it, and how strongly it touched me. Glad you agree.
