The Challenge

Remembrance day, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a day to remember all of those who sacrificed their lives during times of War, held on this particular day because WWI ended on this day in 1918.

The poppy, a very familiar symbol of this day and adopted as a mark of respect because during WWI battles were fought along side the poppy fields and red poppies symbolised the blood and lives lost during these wars. The famous poem In Flanders Fields describes this.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
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.

So as a mark of respect to all those lives lost during any war, to all those lives still at war, this challenge is in honour of you.

The challenge to add your images of anything red, poppies preferably.
