It is OK to remember all killed at the remembrance events.

You donít need to wear a white poppy to suggest otherwise.

For the record, I do support that itís up to individuals to buy poppies or not. Itís just annoying when people say they donít because they glorify war, because that is a superficial understanding.
I think most people have little concept of what happened in either world war, or many of the wars that Britain's have lost their lives in outside of having seen a few films. You are right, the true meaning of the poppy does not glorify war, quite the opposite but buying the poppy for many is like buying chocolate eggs at Easter. it is just something many people do.
