When I was small I didn't really care about the Remembrance Day. I called the poppy a cliché.
I can't tell since when I have changed. Walking in Central this morning and seeing the poppies on people's lapel, I find the little red flowers both moving and striking. It is an open expression of love, solidarity, endurance and respect for those who have sacrificed their lives for others.
Let's not forget.
The Hong Kong Ex-Servicemen's Association will hold "The Remembrance Sunday" on the coming Sunday at the Cenotaph, Central. It is a multi-faith memorial service attended by members of the Ex-Servicemen's Association, some government officials and representatives from the Anglican Church, the Roman Catholic, the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Buddhist and the Muslim communities.
