Friday, 11 November 2011


Today, 11th of November, is a special day for remembrance. Today is Rememebrance Day, also known as Poppy Day or Veterans Day. Many countries around the world honour the ones who died in wars today because on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 1tth month of the year 1911, the First World War finished. So many people wears a poppy on the lapel of their jackets and it is observed a 2 minutes´silence. Many wars have taken place during our history and unfortunately many wars are still taking place nowadays. It is important not to forget that wars don´t lead anywhere and many innocents die during the conflicts. Don´t forget it!

We remember... And now, two minutes of silence, please...
