Tribute : Remembrance Day

 Today, 11th of November, Internet is covering itself with red. The British poppy is everywhere, even on Cheryl Cole. It is an evidence of the influence of Remembrance Day in the modern Britain. Some fashionistas even appropriate the poppy and used it as a complete fashion statement. Accross the Channel, the symbol of the 11th is a cornflower. Did you ever see it ? There's a little one on the page of Google France, because the Anglo-saxons of Google thought that French people would have the same tradition. Nay, nay and thrice Nay. My people forgot its history, forgot the men who fought for their country to build a better future for their children. For us. So, I have decided to put a cornflower on my blog, along the poppies that are the symbol of my new homeland.
