Leonard Cohen Reciting "In Flanders Fields" Has Made This Remembrance Day Just A Wee Bit More Poignant

This video was released by Legion Magazine today to coincide with Remembrance Day and to mark the 100th anniversary of John McRae’s famously stirring war poem.

P.S. I don’t know if “In Flanders Fields” would be widely-known in the United States — I suspect it’s primarily a Canadian and Commonwealth thing — but it’s very moving poem, worth a listen on (what is also) Veterans’ Day.
