Honoring those who gave their lives during the wars, all the wars.
Too many wars.
The red poppies symbolizing blood spilled.
Used to be Decoration Day – a day to put flowers on the graves of the Civil War dead, both Blue and Gray.
It is in May because that’s when the flowers are available.
Not a day for political rhetoric.
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.
