At services around the city today, thousands of people gathered to honour those who fought, and died, for our freedom.

Here’s how some paid their respects in Calgary for Remembrance Day.

We will remember them.

. 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 .. Composed on May 3, 1915 by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium. .. .. #lestweforget #rememberanceday #rememberanceweek #rememberthem #yyc #yycliving #yycnow #capturingyyc #yycarts #yyctoday #yyclife #travelalberta #calgary #calgaryisbeautiful #capturecalgary #calgaryism #calgaryarts #narcitycalgary #captureyyc #calgarynow #calgaryliving #kcco #calgarybuzz #dailyhiveyyc #alberta #cityofcalgary #mustbecalgary #unlimitedcanada #mycity
