A Poppy to Remember

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     Why do you wear a poppy for Remembrance Day? The poppy does not help you to remember better by itself. It is a symbol. The symbol for Canada is the maple leaf. The symbol for those who died fighting in wars is the poppy.
 
2     You might wonder why a poppy was chosen. Before the First World War began in Europe, poppies were a common field flower. When the battles began, the ground was torn up. Forests were ruined. The earth was trampled into a muddy mess. Once the battles were over, the flowers grew back.
 
3     There was a Canadian doctor named John McCrae. He was a man who loved poetry, art, animals, and people. He wanted to be a good doctor so he could help people. Dr. McCrae liked being a soldier. He also liked to write down his thoughts and feelings.
 
4     When World War One began in Europe, Dr. McCrae went to help. It was a terrible place. Areas that were once green and growing were turned to mud. Everything was destroyed. Trenches marked the lines of the battlefields.
