2 minute forum silence

for Armistice day

Quote Quote:
Armistice Day is on 11 November.

A two minute silence is observed at 11am on 11th day of the 11th month because this is when the Great War, or World War 1, came to end in 1918.

But now, this anniversary is used to remember all the people who've died in wars since World War 1.

This includes World War 2, the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and conflicts in Bosnia, Rwanda and Kosovo.

Hello , a 2min silence on 11/11 would show so much respect to those who gave more than we could ever comprehend for what we take for granted- great idea 1986Uno45S
