    Although a lot of people were wearing poppies I can't help shake the feeling that the younger kids can't relate. We grew up with our grandparents or parents giving us firsthand accounts, but they are a rapidly fading age group.
    indeed they are.

    i saw someone got arrested for burning a poppy and posting the video... that's kinda lame though. at first i thought the article was just about getting high--didn't realize there was a custom like that!
