Many of my friends are wearing a white poppy today.

I appreciate that idea, but it doesn't work for me. I wear my peace button every day. Today is no different. I remember the war dead, and the wounded, and the shattered lives, the ruined cities, the orphans, the widows, the tortured, the disappeared.

I post the same statement every year on November 11:

Honour the dead by working for peace.
