Easily lost in the excitement of the release of WotLK, is the passing of the 90th anniversary of WWI armistice. Please take a moment to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war.

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.

Lt.-Col. John McCrae

Thanks,

Squeegiemama

Hmm I played on Tanaris awhile ago. I'm sorry I don't remember you :(

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Lest we forget.

It was a long time ago, and I don't think I even had my current character then. I'm not really a socialite. I just recognize names I've seen around.
