It is getting to be that time of year again. As Remembrance Day comes closer, poppies start appearing on nearly every suit and jacket.
Each year, I remember these lines from John McRae’s famous poem – maybe my favourite war poem of all time:
…To you from failing hands we throw
the torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
