    They fought. Some suffered, some gave all. Some are still with us today to keep the memory alive.

    We must not forget what they sacrificed to ensure our safety and freedom.

    From the First World War to today, many soldiers died on the battlefield. Today, we honor them, and I hope you will have a little tought for those brave men and women.

    Always have, and always will do. Done parades and stuff on remeberance sundays in the past. i think the should be better known than it is though. because some people i know don't even know why they are meant to be being silent, they just do it because they are told. which is still respectful, yes, but it kind of defies the point of remembering if they don't know exactly what they are remembering. anyway. This has always been big for me as a number of my family are/have been in the forces, and i plan to sign up myself in a few years.

    I know the feeling, it's a shame people these days aren't more respectful. I'd advise you not to dwell on it though, with any luck, they'll come to their senses...

    No Rememberance Day is complete without...

    IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.


    My full respect to those who died during the war, and those who survived. I'm thinking of you.

    I'm crying now, can't say much more than that. I've spent the past 2 months looking at WW1 life, it's goddamned terrible, people just don't know...

    Girls who talk and do their hair during the one minute silence should burn in hell.

    My friend farted last year and was kicked out. It was helarious (the fart and the getting kicked out).

    All I can say is thankfully death victims of war is decreasing.

    Thanks to the men and women who sacrificed their lives for ours.

    i know a whole heap of people who have served in most wars. so i take this day seriously.

    my papa (grandpa) was meant to go to warbut he got ill and was unable to go. when he was looking for his unit and the survivors, no one survived so i guessed that was Gallipolli.
    my uncle served soup in the vietnam war camps.

    Pretty much all countries that have had a war since then... quite a few. European examples: Britain, france, germany, norway, belgium...

    You could take some time out to study, I could provide you with links and stuff if you wishe.
