A bit disconcerting. Hope this sort of behaviour doen’t spread. Remembrance Days and the Australasian Anzac Day remember the fallen in all wars. These memorials do not glorify war, but question how and why these wars started.
English: A remembrance poppy from Canada, worn on the lapel of a men’s suit. In many Commonwealth countries, poppies are worn to commemorate soldiers who have died in war, with usage most common in the week leading up to Remembrance Day (and Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand). The use of the poppy was inspired by the World War I poem In Flanders Fields, written by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
