|Handmade ceramic poppies "planted" around the Tower of London's moat|
I have to add though it's hard to find a poppy if you don't know where to get one...
|If you don't have a hole in your lapel, where to put the poppy?|
In any event, it just seems sad and disappointing that Hong Kong people do not remember the war dead. Or is that a gweilo war that didn't concern them?
|A moving tribute to soldiers who have fought for Britain|
In London, there was an amazing display of ceramic poppies, all handmade and "planted" in the moat of the Tower of London by volunteers, thousands and thousands of them to create a sea of red.
It is a beautiful tribute to those who gave up their lives for their country, fighting for freedom.
And isn't that what people are sort of doing in Hong Kong right now?
OK the colours are different, but I just feel it's so important to remember where we came from to figure out where we are now...
