This video is one that you MUST watch.  It includes a reading of the poem 'In Flanders Fields' 

  written by Lt. Col. John McCrae; and the well known excerpt from the poem 'For the Fallen'

             by Laurence Binyon. The graphics and music in this video are truly inspirational!

“In Flanders Fields”.
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.
by Lt. Col. John McCrea.

“For the Fallen”. 
A poem called “For the Fallen” is often read aloud during the ceremony;  the most famous stanza of which reads:
"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."
Fourth stanza of 'For the Fallen' by Laurence Binyon (1869 - 1943)
