Two minutes silence of respect commences 11/11/2018
This post is set to auto publish at 10.59am. To mark 100 years since the end of world war one and to help people remember what happened to help keep this country free.
"In the United Kingdom the day was first commemorated in 1919, when it was known as Armistice Day, with two minutes silence at 11am on 11th November. The day marked the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that brought World War One to an end in 1918. Its name was changed to Remembrance Day after World War Two. The day is also observed by other commonwealth countries." - www.historyonthenet.com
I wont go into much detail on today. I have included a link below should you as the reader wish to look into the history of the great wars this country and indeed the whole world where involved with. Before mobile phones and being offended by silly little things, think what it would have been like to be starving, no medical supplies and every night sitting in total darkness to try and avoid being bombed from high above.
Some people find the red poppy offensive. Well youtr free to leave the country any time you like and take up residency elsewhere. Regardless of what you say or try to find a reason not to support rememberence day, thousands of people died defending the country. Their familys still live with their fathers, sons and daughters sacrifice and we all benefit from being able to go about our daily lives.
Everyone had/has great grandparents, grandparents and family who where involved in the great wars. Everyone.
