    Lankans, here is an example of the true spirit that lies in all of us. In an all too cynical world, here are examples of courage and sacrifice by our very own young men and women. May be, their sacrifice was because they truly loved this country.

    Remembrance Day or Poppy day - The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One. The most famous & the most memorable war poems ever written is:
    In Flanders Fields
    By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD

    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.

    A moment where General Sarath Fonseka should have graced. I salute all who served our country with an honest intent.
