You have to love the difference between America and Britain. The eleventh was also a day of remembrance for those citizens of the commonwealth who have died in the line of duty. The Brits call it "Poppy Day" and wear poppies as a sign of remembrance and of course, a hat. One cannot mourn and remember without the appropriate chapeau. I am really digging the poppy pins. Kind of cute for the holidays, yes?
On a serious note, I am so very thankful for those who have served this country and fought for my freedom. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
