    Thanks for putting up this sad story with its beautiful flower. Not sure why, but for me, WWI more than any other speaks to the absurdity of war.

    For me, WW1 is especially significant because it was to be “the war to end all wars.”

    THANK YOU for sharing such a moving story – I hope some day to plant this rose in our orchard and share the story and memory – and the accompanying challenge to create peace – in our part of the world.
