I spent the afternoon of this Remembrance Sunday delivering leaflets and calling on people who I have work outstanding for (or finished).
However I did take time to think about the fallen in wars current and in the past and to observe the silence. I have no way of knowing what it must feel like to be under fire but I know how much I admire the bravery of those who put themselves on the line: this story is incredible.
On Wednesday I will ask my class to join me in a 2 minute silence at 11am. Probably heralded by the fire alarm (not so silent).
