By Chief Jack Law III

As we prepare for this Memorial Day 2020, we are sure it will be very different from those we remember in the past. There may not be the picnics, the family gatherings, the trips to the beach and all the other things we remember doing in the previous years. On what some refer to the official start of summer, some people will be quarantined at home, some will be afraid to go outdoors, however, there is one thing we must remember, we must remember those who fought for our Country and did not return home to their families and loved ones, we must remember the ones that died defending our freedom.
Originally know as Decoration Day, the origination followed the years of the Civil War, when women would decorate the graves of the soldiers that died during war, and became an official holiday in 1971.
Something that we will miss this year is the reading of "In Flanders Field', which was written by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, if you like, read to yourself, if you desire read it aloud, whatever you choose, remember those whom never returned while defending our freedom.

In Flanders Field

In Flanders Field, 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 Field

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch, be your to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Field

The Officers and Members of West Bradford Fire Co are Thankful for the sacrifices that were made.
