The Eleventh Hour..
Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held around the world today in memory of the signing of the armistice ending hostilities in western Europe, signed at 11am on the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the official end to WW1 came with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles six months later. It was originally suggested there be a five minute silence to pay respect to the soldiers killed during this horrendous war, then two minutes and now it seems the most we can spare is one and if not actually at a service it's noticeable how many don't even observe this. It worries me that 'lest we forget' is losing it's significance amidst the horrors of today and we are forgetting.. what do you think? Gosh I'm a cheery chappie today :) makes you think though oui! Happy Tuesday, take care..
