I just want to talk about rememberance day U.K, (not sure if you guys have it in America i think you have something called Veterans day ?)

As you all know Rememberance day is coming up and always participate i a local parade to rember those who have fallen in battle to give us what we take for granted today. I always wear the red poppys you can get anywhere and display it, Not a lot of people do these days, Members of my family fought in the war and feel pround to honor them by wearing a poppy and attending Rememberance day.

Nowadays i see groups of kids hanging around on the street and i often wonder if they even know about the war and those who have died, and if they show proper respect to the elderly when they see them on the street.

So i was wondering if you do anythink on the 11th, Even if its just 2 min silence at 11:00 on the 11th.

Perhaps just be reading this thread has make you think about the war and those who were in it. If so iv'e done my job, Thanks for reading

REMEMBER.

11:11 on 11.11. marks the beginning of "Fasching", carnival season here, which certainly dates back much further than the tradition of Rememberance day.

That aside, of course i think people should remember those people. After all, the past shapes the present.

Yes, in America November 11 is Veteran's Day. As you said, a very important day to observe. Everyone who lives in a free society should be respectful of those who died for our freedoms. We should hold them in our hearts always and never forget the sacrifices others (both past and present) have made for us. Thank you for posting this and helping others remember. :)

I like to participate in the 2 min silence to remember those who fell. There aren't really any parades around here though.

you forgot canada :P anyways, I use to be a cadet, I remeber standing to attation and slauting the fallen whom gave up there life willing so we could have a future, My great Grand father was in WW 2 he lived threw it, but spoke fondly of thoughs who died in battle. He said to me one time "thoughs men knew of what the face on the battlefield, it didn't deter them what so ever! they mached to there destiny, They saw bodies scattered on the blood stained earth. They marched and prayed for the dead. They gave up there lifes so we could have better ones. They were full of honor right up to the end."

I wasn't familiar with the UK's version of veterans day, but I'll pay respect to any man who's willing to give up his life with honor and dignity for his country. Veterans don't get enough respect for the sacrifices they make.
