Last week I trailed round my village with a red can and a bag of plastic poppys to try to persuade people to part with their money for the Scottish Poppy Appeal. The week before all the poppy volunteers gathered in the village hall to watch this video.
It should be shared with everyone; the statistics are shocking.
Please watch this and give to the Scottish Poppy Appeal if you are as moved by it as I was.
Let us hope Obama and Brown can sort this out.
