Flower Of Faith

The perennial Poppy symbolized sacrifice and renewal to millions of Allied Troops of the First World War
Many still bow their heads in remembrance of the 11 hour of the 11 day of the 11 month. When World War I ceased.

Enlarge this photo and remember:






World War II




And today we say God bless these young men of Jonesboro Arkansas

Veterans day always has a special place in my heart. When I was a young girl in England, I used to sell the poppies in school. Everyone bought one, and wore them on their lapels. The entire town wore them.
This is a heartfelt tribute to the brave men and women, whose service to their countries, enable the remainder of it's citizens to sleep safely in their beds each night.
God Bless them.
