Lest We Forget

Poppies, like heroes,  can be found everywhere.

Enough said.

If you need more food for thought though, check out the poems of Wilfred Owen, who was killed on 4 November 1918 during the battle to cross the Sambre-Oise canal at Ors. This link will take you to The Sentry, where Owen packs enough visual imagary to fill a short story into a poem. His other poems are listed on the right; all will make you think if you care to do so.

      Owen's own story is very interesting, bittersweet we would call it. I would urge people to read up on him if they feel so inclined. I'm considering doing a little more research into him myself.
