Red or White?

You Read It Here First picks up innovations, ideas, things that make up the Zeitgeist -  it listens in to how people feel and think.

It isn't in any way political, but occasionally zooms into something that could be touching on that area.

Remembrance Day is coming up. And therefore it may be worth pointing out that there is an alternative to wearing a red poppy - WEAR A WHITE POPPY!

The white poppy stands for Peace - it doesn't dishonour people who gave their lives for others to live in freedom. It just points out that there is another way tp resolve conflicts - one that doesn't necessarily require people to pay with their lives in the first place.

There's an interesting Wikipedia article if you'd like to know a bit more about it

and here is the White Poppy website itself, if you're interested :

I leave it to you - red, white, or none at all!
