Merci, Corey. When I see the red poppy, I recall that too often we forget about the terrible price that Europe paid in the first World War, especially now that all its veterans are long since deceased.

To learn a bit about one Azorean-born American soldier's experience in battle in France during the War, you might be interested in reading this "António’s Diary: An Azorean Emigrant’s Epic Poem About World War I":

They are not just a solider; they are someone’s child,
They are not just a soldier; they are someone’s love,
They are not just a soldier; they are someone’s parent,
They are not just a solider; they are someone’s friend,
They are not just a soldier, they are our soldiers.
May we never turn them into a statistic and always remember all the hearts they touched, courage they personified and life they had lived. To the families of our fallen words can not express our sadness. We will not forget all you have given. We are so sorry for your loss.
