Veterans’ Day is an opportunity to remember the price many people have paid over the years so that we can live our lives freely and peacefully. It was originally Armistice Day, often observed in many countries today as Remembrance Day, and celebrates the day World War One ended. It is remembered at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. In 1918 as people looked at the fields of muddy, rat-infested trenches it was thought that nothing would ever grow there again. By spring time the area was filled with red poppies. In some countries paper poppies are sold for Remembrance Day and money given to veterans' groups.
