Question of the Day: Are you wearing a remembrance poppy?


Here is the Question of the Day:

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow / Between the crosses, row on row, / That mark our place; and in the sky / The larks, still bravely singing, fly / Scarce heard amid the guns below. …" 

The publication of the wartime poem, “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae, helped make the poppy symbolic of the blood shed during battle in World War I. Friday is National Poppy Day, and the red blooms honor those who died serving in all wars. What memories do you have of wearing a poppy to honor the fallen and supporting the living who have worn our nation's uniforms?
