    we observed the silence at work and it bought tears to my eyes just thinking about all the brave people that gave their life for us.

    Maybe, just maybe, there will come a year when we will not need to be silent for 2 minutes at 11.00, because no one will be left who has lost a love one to war, because there will have been no wars for that long.

    A dream that will never come in my life time, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't dream it.

    So I will always be silent at 11.00 on the 11th day of the 11 month and remember those that died on both sides of a war, they all left people behind.

    We went to a event on Sunday and there was purple poppy's in remembrance for the animals lost in wars.
    Makes you think about animals that suffered and died as a result of human conflicts.
