2019 Ode to John McCrae's "In Flanders Fields" (Christmas Truce)
On Christmas 1914, soldiers fighting in WW1 spontaneously put down their weapons, crossed no mans land and shook hands. The generals panicked as they feared the truth would be revealed: that no one was fighting an evil enemy. For a moment, the illusion was destroyed and soldiers realized that they had the same thing in common: They just wanted to return to their loved ones... If we can truly realize the falsehood of separation it will become impossible to order someone to turn their guns on another for we are all one family. And in that moment the great war will finally be won. We must unify. Right here. Right now. Lyrical composition: MC DRALA https://awaketheday.com https://facebook.com/dralataichi https://facebook.com/awaketheday Inspiration: "In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres.
