Remembrance Day Poetry

In Flanders Field is the classic poem of today, and when I teach war literature, that and Dulce et Decorum Est feature prominently in the curriculum.

Today however, I have two other poems. 

Written by Grace, in lieu of an essay for school... 

And written by Anna....

These are their drafts. Anna has finessed hers and is reading it at the school assembly today. Grace is working on hers, though is participating in her school ceremonies by playing the national anthem on her saxophone.

And me...I teach all day, but will be taking my police foundations students outside at 11 for a few minutes of Remembrance.
