Let us repurpose the poppy to represent any/all person’s military, business, and civilian in all sectors. Right now, the poppy is used by the MASONIC order for this purpose. It could be so much more! The purpose would be the same: to pay homage to our past, to give thanks to those who lost and gave their lives in service to society/humanity! This way, all life would be respected as well as represented! Police, fire, EMS, et al. could be thus commemorated! Each could have a special UN POPPY insignia. Venting again! I can’t help myself! Trying to serve everyone!
