we will remember them!

Ok, so 12 hours ago I was doing a 2 minute silence for the first world war.

I just thought something should be said about remembrance day here...

You can buy a knitting pattern for a poppy from knit on the net, with all the proceeds going to the poppy appeal if you want to be more involved.

I bought one but have had no time to knit it up yet. I shall wear it with pride when I do!

I think we were all effected by those wars, we all had family who fought or lived through that time. Today we honor their memory

Tommorrow I'm dressing up for memorial day. Its a day late, but I was hoping to have others remember and realize the effect those wars had on us.

War is sad like tara said, and its even more sad when it could have been prevented. :

I was in EPQ at the time, and for some reason the bell to signal the two minutes didn't go off in the room we were in, so it got to about three minutes past and we decided to just do it. But it was really awkward, and people kept coming in and talking =(

I wore a poppy Happy Cuz my dad was in the army I get really funny about people not being respectful about war/military things.

I really hate it when people go 'who cares about history? it's the past it's already happened' i just think you f**kin ungrateful little sh!t, who knows what would have happened if we hadn't come through it. Also women got a lot of rights because of the war...smoking, swearing, no chaperones...

There were these boys on tv, 13 and 17 and neither of them knew why people wore poppies, or the year the wars were '1900 or 1800' one of them said! They found their great great grandmother who's father had died in the war, when she was 5 and the boys said that you don't learn well about it from text books, it's better from someone who went through it, but I don't even remember learning about it I just know!
