Dragon laffs getting simple ways to make money online through the day, one laff at a time

Now, it’s memorial day. A day we remember the sacrifices that our service members simple ways to make money online have made for all of us throughout history. If you are a military veteran, a current member of our military, a policeman, fireman, ambulance-man, or anyone else who runs towards the sirens, gunfire, explosions, or screams or a family member of any of the simple ways to make money online above, then you have my eternal gratitude. Thank you for your service.

At one point in time, each of you raised your right hand and swore to simple ways to make money online give up EVERYTHING, up to and including your life, for the protection and well-being of others. Most of you probably felt, as did I, that you were protecting your friends, your family, and your loved ones. But, in reality, you’re also protecting MY friends, MY family, and MY loved ones. And for that, you deserve my eternal thanks. You deserve everyone else’s gratitude, but I can’t control that. Only my own. And you have that, from the deepest part of my heart.

I disagree that it just honors the men and women simple ways to make money online who died while serving in the U.S. Military. The indiana state police have a memorial day service every simple ways to make money online year, as do, I’m sure most every police organization in the country. I know the fire departs do the same thing. So, I believe that this holiday is for all the service simple ways to make money online members and we should give our thanks to all that simple ways to make money online serve and protect.

On may 5, 1868, general john A. Logan, leader of an organization for northern civil war veterans, called for a nationwide day of remembrance later that month. “the 30th of may, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in simple ways to make money online defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed.

For decades, memorial day continued to be observed on may 30, the date logan had selected for the first decoration day. But in 1968 congress passed the uniform monday holiday act, which established memorial day as the last monday in may simple ways to make money online in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees; the change went into effect in 1971. The same law also declared memorial day a federal holiday.

Americans also observe memorial day by visiting cemeteries and memorials. Some people wear a red poppy in remembrance of those simple ways to make money online fallen in war—a tradition that began with a world war I poem. On a less somber note, many people take weekend trips or throw parties and barbecues simple ways to make money online on the holiday, perhaps because it unofficially marks the beginning of summer.

From 1914 to 1918, world war I took a greater human toll than any simple ways to make money online previous conflict, with some 8.5 million soldiers dead of battlefield injuries or disease. The great war, as it was then known, also ravaged the landscape of western europe, where most of the fiercest fighting took place. From the devastated landscape of the battlefields, the red poppy would grow and, thanks to a famous poem, become a powerful symbol of remembrance.

Across northern france and flanders (northern belgium), the brutal clashes between allied and axis soldiers tore up simple ways to make money online fields and forests, tearing up trees and plants and wreaking havoc on the simple ways to make money online soil beneath. But in the warm early spring of 1915, bright red flowers began peeking through the battle-scarred land: papaver rhoeas, known variously as the flanders poppy, corn poppy, red poppy and corn rose. As chris mcnab, author of “the book of the poppy,” wrote in an excerpt published in the independent, the brilliantly colored flower is actually classified as a weed, which makes sense given its tenacious nature.

Lieutenant colonel john mccrae, who served as a brigade surgeon for an allied artillery simple ways to make money online unit, spotted a cluster of poppies that spring, shortly after the second battle of ypres. McCrae tended to the wounded and got a firsthand look simple ways to make money online at the carnage of that clash, in which the germans unleashed lethal chlorine gas for the simple ways to make money online first time in the war. Some 87,000 allied soldiers were killed, wounded or went missing in the battle (as well as 37,000 on the german side); a friend of mccrae’s, lieutenant alexis helmer, was among the dead.

Struck by the sight of bright red blooms on broken simple ways to make money online ground, mccrae wrote a poem, “in flanders field,” in which he channeled the voice of the fallen soldiers simple ways to make money online buried under those hardy poppies. Published in punch magazine in late 1915, the poem would be used at countless memorial ceremonies, and became one of the most famous works of art simple ways to make money online to emerge from the great war. Its fame had spread far and wide by the time simple ways to make money online mccrae himself died, from pneumonia and meningitis, in january 1918.

Across the atlantic, a woman named moina michael read “in flanders field” in the pages of ladies’ home journal that november, just two days before the armistice. A professor at the university of georgia at the time simple ways to make money online the war broke out, michael had taken a leave of absence to volunteer at simple ways to make money online the new york headquarters of the young women’s christian association (YWCA), which trained and sponsored workers overseas. Inspired by mccrae’s verses, michael wrote her own poem in response, which she called “we shall keep faith.”

As a sign of this faith, and a remembrance of the sacrifices of flanders field, michael vowed to always wear a red poppy; she found an initial batch of fabric blooms for herself simple ways to make money online and her colleagues at a department store. After the war ended, she returned to the university town of athens, and came up with the idea of making and selling simple ways to make money online red silk poppies to raise money to support returning veterans.

Michael’s campaign to create a national symbol for remembrance—a poppy in the colors of the allied nations’ flags entwined around a victory torch—didn’t get very far at first. But in mid-1920, she managed to get georgia’s branch of the american legion, a veteran’s group, to adopt the poppy (minus the torch) as its symbol. Soon after that, the national american legion voted to use the poppy as simple ways to make money online the official U.S. National emblem of remembrance when its members convened in cleveland simple ways to make money online in september 1920.

On the opposite side of the atlantic, a frenchwoman named anna guérin had championed the symbolic power simple ways to make money online of the red poppy from the beginning. Invited to the american legion convention to speak about her simple ways to make money online idea for an “inter-allied poppy day,” madame guérin helped convince the legion members to adopt the simple ways to make money online poppy as their symbol, and to join her by celebrating national poppy day in simple ways to make money online the united states the following may.

Back in france, guérin organized french women, children and veterans to make and sell artificial poppies as simple ways to make money online a way to fund the restoration of war-torn france. As heather johnson argues on her website devoted to madame simple ways to make money online guérin’s work, the frenchwoman may have been the single most significant figure simple ways to make money online in spreading the symbol of the remembrance poppy through the simple ways to make money online british commonwealth countries and other allied nations.

Within a year, guérin brought her campaign to england, where in november 1921 the newly founded (royal) british legion held its first-ever “poppy appeal,” which sold millions of the silk flowers and raised over simple ways to make money online £106,000 (a hefty sum at the time) to go towards finding employment and housing for great war simple ways to make money online veterans. The following year, major george howson set up the poppy factory in richmond, england, in which disabled servicemen were employed to make the fabric simple ways to make money online and paper blooms.

Other nations soon followed suit in adopting the poppy as simple ways to make money online their official symbol of remembrance. Today, nearly a century after world war I ended, millions of people in the united kingdom, canada, france, belgium, australia and new zealand don the red flowers every november simple ways to make money online 11 (known as remembrance day or armistice day) to commemorate the anniversary of the 1918 armistice. According to mcnab, the poppy factory (now located in richmond, england and edinburgh, scotland) is still the center of poppy production, churning out as many as 45 million poppies made of simple ways to make money online various materials each year.

In the united states, the tradition has developed a little differently. Americans don’t typically wear poppies on november 11 ( veterans day), which honors all living veterans. Instead, they wear the symbolic red flower on memorial day—the last monday in may—to commemorate the sacrifice of so many men and women simple ways to make money online who have given their lives fighting for their country.
