What We Remember Depends

Nola’s kindergarten class made felt poppies on Friday to teach them about Remembrance Day, and to wear to the concert put on by the older kids.
     I don’t know what she knows about war and sacrifice, but she was so proud of the thing she insisted on wearing it to dance class on Saturday, which really was Remembrance Day, and so did a whole lot more than her father did, perhaps because he thinks too much about the foolish wars we’re fighting now.
      “What are we supposed to remember on Remembrance Day?” I asked her.
      “Remember to wear our poppies!”

    war is cruel,

    thanks for the reminder.

  5. I wish you a blessed Remembrance day

  6. The Bible says, "Out of the mouth of babes." Happy ABC Wednesday! #24

  7. Yes it all gets a little hazy as time goes by

  8. I hope they were taught why they wear the poppies, not just how to make them.
