Memorial Day Poppies

We'll enjoy the day off, and hope for sun. We may find a good bargain, clean out the garage, or enjoy a cool one on the deck.
In light of the thousands fighting now in a questionable war, try to take some time this Memorial Day to remember those who have fought and died.

In 1915, inspired by the poem, “In Flanders Field”, Moina Michael replied with her own poem:

We cherish too,
the Poppy red
That grows on fields
where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

A writer friend has written a story about Moina which was recently bought by Highlights. She sounds like an amazing person. I didn't realize she wrote this poem.
