Up until the American Revolution, Amelia had relatively long hair. England had always maintained it for her, so when she decided she wanted to become independent she cut all of it off to the length she has today. She keeps it short partially as a symbol of her independence and partially because she doesn’t want England to know that she actually did like having her hair long back then.
“Because she felt that all her pain was just another chapter in the Cold War and nothing more; that no one really cared about what she was going through inside.
So Vietnam showed all the feelings she couldn’t express before and during the war in that simple gesture, not only to America and Russia but to the world itself.

(The German army demolished the city if Ieper, Belgium, as a result of fighting in WWI, not to mention killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and destroying hundreds of years of culture. Around this time every year, there’s a ceremony at the Menin Gate to remember those lost in the battles of WWI, and poppies are the symbol used to remember. Germany paid, for 30 years, to have the city rebuilt at the end of both World Wars, and still pays to this day for poppies to be planted.)” — jessaverant
