To all the soldiers I bow my head and offer a prayer in thanks for your sacrifices.

I remember how the vets used to stand outside of a grocery store and sell the paper red poppies.

What a beautiful sea of red in that last photo. Yes, our veterans should have a day of respect and rest. And for the soldiers away from home at "war," may they be back with their families where they belong soon now.

Amen, Diane, well said! I hadn't read that poem since high school, funny I could still remember some of the lines! I love the buddy poppy, our Veterans of Foreign Wars groups pass them out here. I got one just the other day!

I grew up in the midwest and got a paper poppy every year - I'd forgotten about that until I read smilingsal's comment...
I miss that!
I too am very thankful for our veterans who protect our freedom <3
