Remembrance Day

Hello Sunday Readers,

Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day) is a
memorial day many states commemorate since the end of the
First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the
line of duty. 

Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in
most countries to recall the end of hostilities of
World War I on that
date in 1918.
Today we commemorated 100 years of the end of
one of the most devastated and dreadful wars the humanity had to endure.
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar
emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem
“In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
Poppies were worn for the
first time at the 1921 anniversary ceremony. These poppies bloomed across some
of the worst battlefields of
  Flanders in
World War I; their brilliant red color became a symbol for the blood spilled
in the war.
At the beginning real
poppies were worn, but
at a conference in 1920, the National
American Legion adopted it as their official symbol of remembrance. At
this conference, Frenchwoman Anna E. Guérin was inspired to introduce the
artificial poppies commonly used today.
This unique and important
familiar emblem of Remembrance Day has been represented by many artists as a
piece of jewellery.
