Poppies – Lest We Forget

LestWeForget

Lest We Forget – means not to forget the past and the sacrifices that were made, allowing us what we have today.

Remember those that had fallen.

SomethingsNeedToBeRemembered

“Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: Sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. In Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead.” – (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppy#Symbolism)
