Great tribute for today. The day does not seem as memorable anymore...so sad. I recall Armistice Day as a time when we sold and wore red paper poppies with a significant stop at 11 am in the classroom when we stood and paused to remember all the soldiers. Doesn't happen anymore; haven't seen a red poppy in decades.

Kate- It's been about 3 years since I came across vets selling poppies outside the local supermarket. Where have they gone?
