November 11th: Remembering Them...

It's November 11th... Today for the British it's a Remembrance Day. A day of peace, respect and thought in which people all over the country stop for a moment or two and think back on all of the people that have lost their lives to protect our little island nation. 
Remembered on November 11th at 11.11AM, the exact time that WWI was declared over in 1918, I always take a moment or two to stop and to think and although I'm not religious, offer a silent thank you to those people. Other places in the world do this on different days - the Dutch for example have remembrance day on May 4th to mark the close of WWII - but right now, I sit back and wonder what those men and women who have lost their lives fighting for Britain throughout history would make of Ol'Blighty now... 
Traditionally in the UK, Remembrance Day is marked with Poppies, as they were the blood red flowers which bloom over the battle fields in France, and I did just buy some lovely poppies in SL which would have been perfect to memorialise things, but then I found this pose prop from Come Soon - called Lady Autumn - and the white roses just seemed like poignant hints at peace... The world could do with a little more peace nowadays, don't you think?! 
As always with Come Soon Poses, the pose comes with a full scene and just the option to use the pose alone - here I was a little naughty and used the chair and roses along with the pose - but by having the tank and the sandbags - available from H&C Wheels by the way - I brought the memorial to life a little!
Let's make today, and all the days following, a day of peace! I know that it's a lot to ask but isn't it about the time world was allowed that?
