Remembrance Day.
Remembrance day takes place on 11th November. It is a day we take to celebrate the courageous lives of all the women and men who were killed in both World Wars and other conflicts. 
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar symbol of remembrance day due to the poem "In Flanders Field".The poppies were symbolic because when the war was over poppies started growing in some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War 1, their vibrant, strong colour was a great symbol for the blood spilled in the war. This is why today around remembrance day we wear a red poppy, the money made from selling these poppies goes towards helping veterans and their dependence. 
It is important to remember those who have passed for us during wars, because they devoted their time, their love, and even their own lives so that we can have what we have today. Also because they fought for us we get to live life the way we want too, not under a dictator, and we get to speak for our rights. This is why we should appreciate what they have done for us because they have given us everything we have today and we should keep supporting fighters today in wars. 


  1. I agree with this, many brave soldiers lost their lives and buying the poppys is a great help.

  2. Bethany, you have clearly outlined why Remembrance Day is important for us to commemorate.
