In 1915, inspired by the poem “In Flanders Fields,” Moina Michael replied with her own poem:
|We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
She then conceived of an idea to wear red poppies on Memorial day in honor of those who died serving the nation during war.
Take a little time this Monday to think about those men and women who gladly serve to protect the freeedoms we enjoy in America. Especially remember those who have passed away in service…
We love you, Ernie and Clay!
To all the family out there who serve and have served, thank you. You are good. You are brave. We are forever grateful.
