As you may be aware, rememberance day is on the 11th of this month, I'd just like to know how many people on here actually consider this to be of any importance, I know some people would say it seems like glorifying war, but I personally think its very important to remember those people who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms we do.
A lot of people in this country (i don't want to start harping on about the foreigners) don't appreciate what men gave so they could enjoy a life here.
I always make a point of buying a poppy, I have a car sticker which is on my car all year round, and i'd always stop to chat to the war veterans who collect, I have the utmost admiration for these guys, although most of them that are able bodied enough to collect didn't see much of the war, I think they all deserve respect and admiration from the rest of us.
Spend 5 minutes of your day to give these guys a little change and ask them what they did, a lot of them love telling their stories, and it shows you care.
If only a few of you find the time to do this, it may make some old guy's life that little bit more special.
