Remembering, so as not to forget

Remember those who died
for reasons
obscure.
Suffering unspeakable
pain.
With retrospect
we see now, and
try not to forget
again.

The poppy is not a political symbol, or glorification of war. Who wants to listen to the FA? One of the most corrupt companies on Earth. Proven. There is no moral debate over the poppy. Funds raised by the poppy appeal directly benefit those who have suffered the most at the hands of despotic leaders and fought against the most savage evils. The poppy is at the heart of an appeal of remembrance, and the message we should be remembering is as important now as it has been over the last 100 years.

Lets not make the same mistakes again.

2016 has been a rough year.

Let’s remember there were many years in the past that the suffering was greater, the causalities many more, and the battles much harder.

They died for our right, our ability, to remember. So let’s.
