i dont agree on the civilian bombing in the wars but that doesnt mean that the germans were right to fight the war.

Well in the silence today at school a lot of us were wearing poppies: prefects do come around to tutor groups and my tutor sent the school a message on the Firefly, so a lot of people had them.

We can remember without wearing a Poppy ya know.......
the poppy is the official symbol of the rememberance act, also it shows that you have made charity toward the royal british legoin, as all the money made from it goes to the veterans. ¬-¬

Sometimes people just forget to wear one.....
Sometimes there's better ways to respect army guys, I had a army guy (very old man) who fought in WW2 living right next door to me who I used to help out abit (helping fix a pipe or whatever) and I thanked him for being the brave guy he was.

Some guys who wear poppies just wear poppies for the sake of it without any true meaning or respect.

I see lawyers wearing poppies for example and I remember the army guy who lived next door to me was getting harranged with letters by a lawyers firm for some unpaid cowboy building work. It stressed him terrible and I even phoned the firm and told them and they said 'i understand but'

What a stupid victim blaming argument. You should be ashamed.

Being in my early 20's and i've always paid my respects to the fallen, i can't quite understand why people don't wear the poppy in England?

The reason i wear the poppy is to remember all that have fallen, past, present and in the future.

Wear the poppy with pride people, these people experienced the closest simulation of hell in their final moments.
I never wear a poppy. Those people experienced hell because they were forced into a war by the ruling classes who were perfectly happy to start a war but preferred others to go and die on their behalf. After the dust had settled on that devastating chapter in human history we said never again. The poppy was to be the symbol of lost lives and a warning on the horrors of war. But here we are a century later and it's still happening. Tony Blair started a war against Iraq, sacrificing British soldiers so that him and his buddies could seize control of Iraqi resources. Every day the mainstream media pushes more lies about the Iranian and Syrian governments to try and drum up support for military action against them. We can wear poppies if we want but if we keep allowing the government to start wars which end up killing our lads, the entire point of the poppy as a symbol is lost.
