Why I don’t wear a poppy

November 11, 2008 Comments Off on Why I don’t wear a poppy

Why I don’t wear a poppy:

  • The Vietnam War 1959–1975 coincides exactly with the first 16 years of my own life

  • I grew up with these terrible images every night and day in the media

  • wearing a poppy feels like tacitly approving such terrible violence
