My son asked me one day about the little paper poppy in the truck windshield that I had trouble tossing. Faded and torn it was purchased, as I always do, from the veterans who give them for a small donation. I tried, in vain, to explain where how story of the poppy came from. This is truly an old story that should never be forgotten. The British, who lost so many, in that war-to-end-all-wars (we all wish that was true), have done it in stunning style and grace. NBC News brings us a quick report on this Veterans tribute. It reminds us why we all wear ‘poppies for a young man’.
