Poppies | Vlog | Episode 13 ● by Jess

[*Please Note* This video is now set to private]

A look at the centennial year of Remembrance of WWI here in in London.

We went to visit the epic poppy ceramic exhibition at the Tower of London. Each poppy represents one of the fallen soldiers in WWI. As a whole, the poppies also represent the blood spilt during the war (the poppies are literally gushing out of the windows).

I love that in the UK there is just this collective memory of WWI... its something that doesn't really exist in the United States, and it is a really moving thing.

If you have yet to see it, please watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWF2JBb1bvM
It is one of the most beautiful and moving things I have seen in awhile.
