Tower of London goes red for WW1 centenary

LONDON – On Tuesday nights I get to run with a great group of people who work at the Tower of London. We run all over the city and cover over 5km. It’s been a great way to get out of the office and get active. I haven’t been going much for a long time and I’ve got out of shape but last week we all met up and as I approached the Tower I noticed all the poppies that had been placed in the moat. Thousands upon thousands have been plants over the past few days and have attracted so many people. I’m told that as the volunteers place the poppies in the moat, the crowds thank them with applause in a sign of support and gratitude. I think placing all these poppies is a wonderful way to commemorate the centenary of the start of WW1 – a war that changed Europe forever…
