“In this circa 1925 photograph, the poem “In Flanders Fields” is shown in downtown South Bend, in the Christmas window display at Robertson Brothers Co., a department store that eventually became known as Robertson’s …” ““In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, between the crosses row on row…” begins the poem “In Flanders Fields.” Written by a Canadian physician, Lt. Col. John McCrae, it was composed on May 3, 1915, after the funeral of his friend and fellow soldier, Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. It was later published in the London magazine Punch on Dec. 8, 1915, exactly 99 years ago.” South Bend Tribune.
Now a hundred years, and humanity STILL has not learned.
