Once again, on the 11 November two minutes of silence were observed at 11:00 am to remember the dead of the United Kingdom in the armed conflicts of the last century.

Another impressive and moving demonstration of how powerful silence is.

Silence is a simple and very effective way to give honour. If you want to sabotage what is honoured, you can very effectively do so by sabotaging silence.

As Annibale Bugnini & Co. very well knew.



Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John Mc Crae, 1915.
