It’s not about the poppy, but the poppy helps guide us in the remembrance of those who fought and died for our country.
Slowly, as the years tick by, we have lost all our First World War veterans who participated in our armed services and now those who fought in the Second World War.
I thank those past and present who still stand for our country. These soldiers fought for freedom in other countries so the war wouldn’t be taken to our own country.
The worst kind of war would be the war within our own country, where one neighbour would fight against another neighbour.
So when I see the poppy, I feel gratitude and proud that our country still remembers.
