Good evening Team Poppy.
It’s Remembrance Day tomorrow … a solemn day when we have an opportunity to express our deep gratitude to our servicemen and women past and present for their service and sacrifice … and pay tribute also to their families and their wider communities.
These days, we wear our poppies not only as a symbol of remembrance of the fallen, but also as a symbol of our support for those who have chosen (or in the case of those who in the past have been conscripted) to serve their country … our country.
So … this week we have again created a most beautiful and moving tribute at Melbourne’s iconic Shrine of Remembrance. As beautiful as it is … this is only one of many many other tributes that have been created throughout the world … created from our hearts, with love, and honour and respect.
If you could reflect on this post and pass on our message to anyone you know who is currently serving, or has served, or has suffered from the ongoing effects of their own service or their loved ones’ service … it is why we are doing what we are doing …
This tribute is our gift to you.
Our way of saying thank you, and a poignant reminder of the depth of feeling from a grateful nation.
Your service will not be forgotten.
LEST WE FORGET
A huge thank you to Claire Takacs for the lovely early morning images.
