Pride please

Just a few hours from the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Please wear your poppy with pride.

No glorification. Just pride.

I can’t imagine what it must have been like then, or like it is now. I can only cite my favourite Uncle Ronnie and what he went through during D-Day. I couldn’t have coped.

Just remember that it isn’t their fault. They just did/do what they were told to. That’s the way armies and politics work. And the way we don’t.

    Thanks for calling by, Parrots.

    It's always good when someone leaves a personal recommendation about books, or music.
