Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar 90 years on this year - 50 years on? I think so because sadly, war will still be with them and young people dying. Crying or Very sad

Re:
Thank you for the lovely poppy picture. I was asked today (in a French restaurant ), why we were wearing poppies. Hub and I were taking a good friend, a veteran of World War 2, out for lunch after the Anglican church service. I felt a sense of pride in my poppy and what it represents.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar That picture of Poppy is so beautiful Faith.

I did go to church and prayed for Peace and prayed too for all the men and women who lost their lives in the Wars.

I too took along a veteran of WW2 who stood up and gave a speech, he is 90 years of age and has many times chatted to me about the sad times of those soldiers fighting in times of War.

Re:
Jayem's Avatar I too have been asked why we wear poppies, and yet even in Hong Kong we have the Remembrance Day service and lay wreaths at the Cenotaph. There were many, many Asian soldiers killed too, but WW2 is not seen as 'our' affair, somehow. Strange to have that other perspective spelled out to us.

Re:
I was at a Rememberance Day service yesterday and will be writing a post about it today or tomorrow. Always moves me. We should never forget, but as the centuries roll it will diminish, as has the impact of earlier wars.
