Wayward Ditch Pig
Just for example, I give a **** about rememberance day beyond it's historic significance. But my dad and I spend every boxing day binge watching some of the better stuff done on WW1 & 2. Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Private Ryan. Every year we have the same conversations about how shit that must have been, how lucky we both were to have grown up in peace time, etc.Maybe shaming/bullying anyone to buy poppies and support veterans isn't the best way to help? Maybe the population needs to be educated -again- around what the campaign is really for.
On my own time randomly through the year I read books about both wars, the people, the places, the events. But **** me because I don't care about wearing a poppy as a signal of virtue signalling in the 2nd week of November, right?
Confining the appreciation of our military history to a single day on the calendar, and brow beating anyone who doesn't follow the herd can **** off.
