A Day To Remember

"Lord, bid war's trumpet cease; Fold the whole earth in peace."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes



They died
That we may live

Let us never forget…


Soldiers Cry (by Roland Majeau)

Talk of trouble is sent through the country
And we need an army
To fight for the right
Young men enlist and are sent to the battle
To fight the offender and help our allies

And the young men cry Oh Canada
We'll gladly go and fight for thee
And the young men cry Oh Canada
We'll fight to keep you free

The battles raging
Gun fire is blazing
A tired young soldier is clinging to life
Hes ordered off
And obeys by advancing
No hope of returning from the enemy fire

And the soldier cries Oh Canada
If it must be so, I'll die for thee
And the soldier cries Oh Canada
I'll die to keep you free

And we all miss oh Canada
The land where we all used to be
And we all long for Canada
The true north
strong and free

And the soldier cries Oh Canada
If it must be so, I'll die for thee
And the soldier cries Oh Canada
I'll die to keep you free

Far away we had seen a great danger
And yet there's a danger much greater within
The noise we make as we constantly bicker
Would hush not a whisper if we listen to him

All the thousands cry Oh Canada
Is that why we have died for thee?
And the soldiers cry Oh Canada
We died to keep you free

And the soldier cries oh Canada
Be true
And strong
For me
