MISSISSAUGAWATCH (Makawao Veterans Cemetery, Maui, Hawaii. November 11, 2010):

November the 11th, 10:48 and we made a lei out of the poppies that we had. There they are. And what I’m going to do is tie them here to this flagpole. Right there.

[CROSS DISSOLVE]

Here we are. And these are the poppies that we made.

[CROSS DISSOLVE]

It is now 10:50 and we’re going to observe our moment of silence at the 11th hour.

Taps and poem played from Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 at site.  11:00 am Hawaiian time.

Eleven o’clock Hawaiian time.

Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 at site plays In Flanders Fields read by Peter Bennett.

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.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (Makawao Veterans Cemetery, Maui, Hawaii. November 11, 2010):

Minute’s silence.
