Yesterday was Remembrance Day.
A day of ceremony, poppies and a moment of silence.
The odd thing is that while I saw poppies sprouting up on coats all around me, I never found a place to get my own.
Because of the solemnity of the day and experiences like that in Creampuff’s excellent post, I go out of my way to find a poppy and rarely spend a November 11th poppy free, but before I could call out for assistance the time had come and gone.
So I remember, and honour, and give thanks for a lifetime filled with relative peace
May next year find us closer to a war-free world.
