Farewell, Brother..... THE LORD IS MY SHEPARD, I SHALL NOT WANT, HE MAKES ME LIE DOWN IN GREEN PATURES, HE LEADS ME BESIDE STILL WATERS, HE RESTORES MY SOUL, HE GUIDES ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME'S SAKE. EVEN THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL, FOR YOU ARE WITH ME, YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF THEY COMFORT ME, YOU PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES. YOU ANNOIT MY HEAD WITH OIL;Y CUP OVERFLOWS. SURELY GOODNESS AND LOVE WILL FOLLOW ME, ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE, AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER. AMEN [USA]

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. [red]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.[/red] I think this is a beutiful poem, and I think that the last bit is espescially relevant here.
