My mum tried to order a poppy for my, but the shipping costs made it impossible. I was upset but understood. Then my mum’s cousin came over for a visit and had secretly bought me one of the poppies. I was so thrilled. I loved the story behind the poppies and what they stood for. I love reading all about history and also think that the lives lost should never be forgotten. My poppy is propped against the wall in my bedroom.
