in canada, november 11th is remembrance day. the symbol for us to remember the fallen soldiers is the poppy. i found this beautiful alicia bock photo of poppies to be a perfect companion for the occasion.

good for you! thank you for posting this. it is so important to remember those who served, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice: yesterday and today. lest we forget.

Also in England, this is a massive occassion and rightly so. We have been wearing poppies for a while now. I also think its important that we continue the tradition of remembrance with our children, I learn't from my parents and grandparents who lived through these times.
What a beautiful image you chose.
