Twitter Poppy !!


Recommended Posts

or why not donate to a worthy (poppy-related) charity and resist the peer pressure to wear a poppy in any form?

There's my problem with Poppies, wearing one is no longer really a sign of respect like it used to be, more a 'chore' or something you're made to feel is a Duty these days... or for the dreaded reason 'because it's cool' (one reason that should NEVER be used to try and convince me to do anything, I'll decide if I think it's 'cool', thanks). For me, I don't assume people not wearing one is a sign of disrespect or anything like a lot of people seem to.

Also I guess putting one on your twitter means the charity that collects under the Poppy appeal get nothing, so if I'm gonna have one, I'd rather make it a real one, but above all else I'd rather just make the donation really.

I personally don't need for there to be a sign that I have done this for the approval of others (same reason I have a small yellow flower from a Marie Curie appeal, but just keep it rather than wearing it).

So there ya go, possibly as thought provoking as I'm gonna get... ever.
