On November 11th, Alice was given a poppy. The poppy was black in the middle and had red petals. Her mother got very emotional and told her that a lot of Canadian soldiers died in WW1. She also told her that her father died in the war. “ The poppy is a symbol of remembrance.” said her mother. So Alice put on her poppy, and went upstairs to learn more about what happened in WW1. She learned that more than 45,000 Canadian soldiers died fighting for their freedom. Alice wanted to tell all her friends about the poppy and the war.
