Remembrance Day 2013

A couple of days ago, a mother and her teenage daughter came into the store, bought some Christmas crafts and came to the front counter to pay.  The teenage daughter spotted a box of poppies and just started at them for a few seconds. The mom asked her, “Do you want to buy one to wear at school? The daughter picked up the poppy and said, “That’s a small poppy for such a big sacrifice.”

We all just stood there for a moment and were silent.
