It’s that time of year again, the day we respect those who died in wars, that Canada has engaged in. To celebrate, we pin poppies to our jackets, in respect of those who died. How did the poppies get from the ground to our jackets? It came from the poem, In Flanders Fields. It talked about how poppies quickly grew around the graves of those who died in Ypres. People then made artificial poppies out of silk, put a needle through the middle of the poppy to hold the black seed part and the red pedals together and the needle then goes on your jacket.
To be honest with you, I wish pin poppies could get more popular. The reason I say this is because people keep getting poked with the needle and if pin poppies get popular, it could prevent poking into your skin. I hope to see that day come. Well, I wish everyone and the Canadian military a Happy Remembrance Day. My condolences of those lives taken during previous and ongoing wars…
