I wanted a poppy for a few reasons, but I guess mostly the entire installation at the Tower of London was just absolutely beautiful and poignant. Seeing the waves of red, even just over the internet, was so moving, especially when I have no direct connection to the War. Seeing how much red there was, and knowing each flower was a soldier, it’s hard to describe. It helped to bring the history books to the present.
