  1. Hey again Tehillah, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the poem, In Flanders Fields. I'm glad you spoke about the poem being sweet and sad. It certainly makes you feel a mixture of emotions. You feel proud of the sacrifices that the soldiers and their families made during the war but it is also tragic how many people died.

    Did you do anything to celebrate ANZAC day last year?

    Thanks, Billy
