Poppies and Remembrance

#16

Wear your poppy if you wish, you have every right. Why should people object. It doesn’t hurt anyone. You wear the poppy to remember people who gave their lives in a brutal war to make your life safe. You wear the poppy to remember family members who were slaughtered needlessly. You wear the poppy to do your bit to make sure that these people are not forgotten. Who are FIFA to tell footballers whether they may or may not wear this sign of respect and remembrance? Who are these people? Why should we not remember what happened in that terrible war? Why should we not remember how many lives were lost? Who is this respect and remembrance offending? There are so many more important things on which to spend our energy. Don’t you think?
