I do not condone war, I do not celebrate war, I do not support war... So why do I wear a poppy?
My grandfather was in the army during World War II and he was a part of the D Day landings so yesterday on Remembrance Sunday I remembered him and the role that he played in fighting for our freedom, in being a part of a bigger force of people that fought for our country and defended us from being invaded. Did he join up through choice or was he called to arms? I am not sure.
