In the fields where people killed each other: first spring after the killing stopped poppies sprang up.

Though it doesn't sound it: stunning, heart-breaking sight, takes one's breath away....bright red Poppies --on graves --entrance to churches and temples --in lapels...sellers all over London street corners... World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month: "The war to end all wars."
Too bad it didn't stick: twenty years later nazis, the original terrorists, wanted to get 'even' --slaughtered, gassed, performed lethal medical experiments and mass murder on eleven million un-armed Jewish children, mothers, fathers and grandparents, Gypsies, scholars, artists, authors, scientists, homosexuals, clerks, clergy, professors, doctors, poets, bankers, carpenters, rabbis, disabled, Europeans, non-blond and communist civilians in addition to Allied military personnel. german civilians: "we didn't know why Jewish neighbors all disappeared or where they went; hitler wasn't all bad: he made trains run on time." Head of Catholics: Nothing to say. New 'haters' didn't learn: attacked unarmed innocent citizens of the US 64 years later --without provocation, justification or warning.
