Floral tribute to murdered soldier

Lee Rigby tribute

FOLLOWING an internet appeal that has gone viral, cities, towns and villages across the country have been implored to join in with a ‘Protest of Flowers’ over the murder of soldier Drummer Lee Rigby last week in Woolwich.

An anonymous internet letter circulated widely on Facebook and other social media networks, says:

“As a mark of respect to Lee Rigby and a sign of solidarity against the cruel, cowardly terrorism we face from such extremists, I would like everyone to start placing flowers at their local war memorial. Every city, town and village has one; place flowers, cards, placards, poems, all saying no to terrorism and letting Lee’s family know just how much we care. When his 2 year old son, Jack, becomes older, instead of news reports on his father’s death, he can be shown the outpouring of floral tributes to his father and learn how his father’s death began a ‘floral revolution’.”

Hull Cenotaph has seen dozens of tributes been layed and now Hedon has followed suit with flowers and a poem placed at the war memorial in Hedon Cemetery – and more tributes expected in the next few days.
