What a wonderful article and what an appropriate closing for my Memorial Day. I too remember the red poppies. I think about them often and wonder have we strayed too far from the message of the poppy and the purpose of the day. I see the flag most everywhere but the poppy tells the story. So often we hurry away our traditions and heritage with trying to play catch up in a world that moves too fast. Today was a day for the red poppy which has such a universal message. I was on vacation in Victoria, Canada on their "memorial" day and what a wonderful day, red poppies everywhere. We didn't need to ask what day they were celebrating. We knew. The poppy told the story.
