I saw a Veteran handing out poppies, stop a lady and asked if he could re-position her poppy. While doing so he told that lady she should wear the poppy on her right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn't have their loved ones return home, and the green leaf represents the grass and crops growing and future prosperity after the war destroyed so much. The leaf should be positioned at 11 o'clock to represent the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the time that World War One formally ended. He was worried that younger generations wouldn't understand this and his generation wouldn't be around for much longer to teach them.
Please copy and paste to share, just like I did. 🌹 We must remember those from All Wars too! I copied this from someone else. Please do the same to pass this knowledge on to those who may not know the meaning behind the poppies that are given out for donations every year.
Thank you ALL who have served and are serving our country!!
