Well, it's that time of the year again when we remember those who died for our country in the two world wars...well, any wars really, but it came about because of WW1 I believe....At the 11th minute of the 11th hour this morning, most of the UK atleast will be silent for 2minutes...Oh, it's 10 past now...:ohcrap: :ohcrap:
We had a Remembrance Day assembly at school yesterday, and some people got to stay home from work, but it's not really that celebrated around here...Hopefully it will be soon.
friday was also the Marine Corps birthday!! oorah! hapy birthday marines!!
I thought Remembrance Day was a Canadian thing only...is it only England as well? Or the Commonwealth?
i suppose it would be the commonwealth, to remember the 4,000,000 ex service men and women!
Do you guys wear poppies?
here in the US its Veterans day. im not sure about anywhere else
i just found this and thought some people may like it:
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in ... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
I thought it was a UK only thing, lol. I guess it's a commonwealth thing in
that case...I wonder if the Aussies 'remember' too...(couldn't really say
Yes, I heard yesterday that depending on what side of the body you wear it on, determines if you were ever in service yourself, or if you are/were a female in service...
have you got one for the bonnet/grille for your car???
No....I thought that was only red noses, lol
