This weekend, the poppy becomes more than a simple much loved wayside or cornfield flower. Each delicate silken scarlet petal that bow their heads in the fields, or fall in the silence of the Albert Hall, reminds us of all those effected by war, past and present, particularly those (the named and the unknown) who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country, and for each and every one of us and the freedom we all hold so dear yet mostly take for granted. This weekend, let us say thank you, and, at the going down of the sun and in the morning, remember Them.
