One thing really, right now it’s #RemembranceDay in #Australia. The big reason I am going to stay off social media, in general, today though, is because of the #rightwing trying to justify ‘that’ symbol. If I see one of them try to pay their “respects” I will lose my bottle.

They are seriously pissing me off. One moment their trying to justify “that” symbol, and then the next they are saying what a disgrace the younger generation is for not “boot licking” Winston Churchill. I’m serious, they keep saying “What, would they have preferred the other guy to win”. Which they didn’t say at all.

Winston Churchill was so beloved, that after the War, they voted him out. He was not a nice man. And they’re all acting like Churchill fought the Nazis on his own. An estimated 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 people died during World War II. Churchill did not win the War, the young men and women, some animals won it.

Anyways, Remembrance Day is actually about World War 1, it still pisses me off. There were 20 million deaths and 21 million wounded. The total number of deaths includes 9.7 million military personnel and about 10 million civilians.

I found out recently that Germany choose to use white poppies instead of the red. It seems they feel that the white represents true remembrance, rather than the red, that represents bloodshed. I think both are valid.


Remembrance <3

Today is a very special day in Australia Day and I feel like with I can safely come back to social media, because it is very important to remember this and never forget!


What is Remembrance Day?

Remembrance Day (can also be known as Poppy Day) is a day of memorial and is observed in the Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember those of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

Every year, on this day, Australians observe a one minute’s silence at 11 am on November the 11th, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

“At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare.” Australian War Memorial.
