Memorial Day Reminds us to Remember

Did you wear a red poppy on Memorial Day? It has become a symbol for Memorial Day and reminds us to remember our fallen in all wars and conflicts. It represents hope. They still grow amid the grave markers at “Flanders Fields” even today. Last Sunday I took enough poppies to a church in Glendale to be distributed to the congregation. As I gave them to some young people before the worship service began, some of them had never seen a red poppy and knew nothing of what it stood for. They seemed pleasantly surprised as I shared with them the symbolism of the poppy. Why not wear your poppy at times other than Memorial Day? It may give you an new opportunity to share the story of the many who have made the ultimate sacrifice that we might enjoy the privileges that are ours today today!!
