that's us as the front with a camera...woop woop!
Much respect. Really heart warming to see.
Here's a thought. Next time, let's all actually EAT poppies for remembrance day. World peace guaranteed.
Goosebumps for sure. I know I paused at the 11th hour today. Happy to have learned German by choice...
My class of 7yr olds were very sombre today - so important to keep the memory alive. Watching the footage at the Cenotaph always brings a tear to my eye.
Lest We Forget
Wish I had been able to be there... And I am so grateful to my English teacher for turning my personal silence into one for the whole class, after I told him at the start of the lesson what I would be doing. Thanks for uploading the picture.
We stopped in the middle of a presentation for our two minutes silence during a seminar.

They fought for our freedom we should make sure the next generation understand why we should never forget.x
So many young lives lost through the years, giving their lives today for our tomorrow.Sobering pictures,thank you Stephen.
Thank you for sharing this, very moving for me-having lost my brother in Afghanistan
How moving that we can all be united at times, thank you for sharing this
I always remember this date and time, but only because of Dorothy Sayers' "The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club." That and 10/14/66 - 1066, that is. Embedded in the brain. I miss London.
Spent time in Ypres and the Somme in March... find it so moving that so many still respect the 2 minute silence.
I was there, the one in the black jacket, I really wanted to talk to and meet you stephen
I look at the world now and I have to ask myself, is this what they fought for? I don't think we remember at all. I don't think we even care.
I used to buy a poppy every year whilst living in the UK. (My grandfather spent time in Scotland as POW and wanted to return later as the locals had treated him with respect. Sadly, he died in 1969 aged 50.)
Thought the Sassoon poem was very brave both politically and personally. We were singing in choir and were desperate to say hello but can understand why you were so quiet
