Veterans Day

Today I saw a man selling poppies stop a lady and ask if he could re-position her poppy.

While doing so he told that lady she should wear the poppy on their right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn’t have their loved ones return home, and the green leaf represents the grass and crops growing and future prosperity after the war destroyed so much.

The leaf should be positioned at 11 o’clock to represent the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the time that World War One formally ended.

He was worried that younger generations wouldn’t understand this and his generation wouldn’t be around for much longer to teach them. We must remember those from our current wars too!

For those that do not know, the eleventh day of the eleventh month is always Veterans Day!

You know I personally don’t mind not buying toilet paper, paper towels and shavings for my animals. I like using alternative products. I can’t help wonder though, what happens when everybody makes the change?

Why do people call it misinformation when Justice Sotomayer states untruths about children with Covid 19. Looks like a whopper to me. Glad media called her on it.

Misinformation= truth that has to be censored or lies that have to be spread. Funny how that word gets twisted.

While the politicians and media balloon 1/6 as something it isnt, I will be remembering Ashley Babbitt and Sequoria Turner-Williamson and everything that led up to 1/6. It wasn’t a one day event. The lies continue.
