Just did the 2 min silence, anyone else?
Yes. I am old enough to have had an uncle serve in that war. Thanks for the reminder. We should never forget. John
Isn't today 11-11-10 ??
yes, but 11-11-11 means 11 hour, 11 day, 11 month
I also paused to remember.
To any veteran who served in whatever capacity during whatever period - thank you for your service.
We had a 2 minute silence too.
11-11-11 is a sad memorial, I know the significance even more having learned modern world history.
Umm! guys...11 Nov. is also a special day in Maldives.
Before I tell u anything, I like to know why 11.11 is a sad day for u guys.
I'm sorry for being ignorant.
The end of WWI, a fairly major war for American and European powers.
WWI..tht goes way back.
I wonder why it's a sad say...You shud celebrate the end of all the killings
Only if the killing was unavoidable (plagues).
It's sad because of the ridiculous waste of human lives in the war, on both sides.
It's the same kinda day for us too...and is a Government holiday
