Keep the poppies relevant

The following letter was published by Calgary Sun, on Nov 6, 2023.

I’m starting to see more and more poppies being displayed and it’s making me fear, are these just meaningless ornaments now? We say ‘Lest we forget’, but it seems we’ve sure forgotten, especially considering how complicit we are through the nascent stages of WW3. True commemoration involves more than just a poppy on our coat. We must be willing to ensure we don’t see a repetition of the past’s atrocities, and right now this requires us all loudly calling for a ceasefire in the middle east. Lest we forget.


(The loss of lives in the middle east is unacceptable.)
