No I didn't mean traffic stops. I meant they have the parades and they stop the traffic. Slightly different although I've been in those areas and
people generally respect the silence.

Yes! 'Respect' is the key thing. For veterans AND serving personnel

The silence sometimes has an eerie quality and especially when the old fellas are about who served in WW2, Korea, Falklands etc. As ever with modern
times there's a media storm in a teacup about white poppies versus red ones. Nobody can leave anything alone anymore.
Most people want peace and appreciate how some wars are necessary. Even the very questionable wars can still have soldiers committing acts of great
honour and bravery. The red poppy, to me, is all of that and more. It wasnever intended to be a high five for killing enemies.
