Honoring those who gave their lives during the wars, all the wars. Too many wars. The red poppies symbolizing blood spilled. Blood. Used to be Decoration Day – a day to put flowers on the graves of the Civil War dead, both Blue and Gray. Flowers. Not a day for political rhetoric but a day to remember. Politics create the wars, we the people fight in them. Let’s remember the people who gave their lives today. Decorate their graves, and pray for peace.
Never glorify war.
