When Colonel McCrae wrote this poem, there was such tremendous loss of life, that World War 1 was often referred to as the war to end all wars. Unfortunately, that was not the case. During the month of November, poppies are worn to remember the service men and women who died in all the wars, past and present. Every year, on Armistice Day, November 11 at 11:00 AM, people stop for a minute of silence to honor the dead for their ultimate sacrifice, to thank the veterans, and to hope for a world without war.
