Poppy: Flower of Remembrance

The poppy - gorgeous and red as blood. Here, a gentle reminder to us from thestickman.

From the article
The red poppy is a common weed of Europe and was adopted as the official flower of remembrance and honor to those whom fought and died in foreign wars. As we approach another patriotic holiday in America I am again reminded of the sacrifices that so many soldiers made to keep our nations free.
