The Tower of London Remembers with Ceramic Poppies

The Tower of London Remembers with Ceramic Poppies

Is there a better way to remember the 888,246 fallen soldiers who gave their lives for Britain?

The British capital doesn't take half measures when it comes to commemorating Remembrance Day. The city planted nearly 1 million ceramic poppies all around the Tower of London, dotting the vast courtyard like a field of scarlet roses.

The visual spectacle is truly impressive and looks as if the historic castle was bleeding in tribute to all the soldiers who left their souls on the battlefield.

Let's remember that Remembrance Day marks the end of WWI, which, according to the armistice, was to end at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
