Today is Remembrance Day…. at the 11th hour,on the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will remember those who have fallen…did you?

We were out in a public place…a hospital cafe to be exact…and it was interesting watching how people reacted.

An announcement came over the loudspeaker system, and a ceremony was being shown on the TVs. Some people, like us, stopped and acknowledged the moment’s silence.

A select group, including a group of nurses, continued to talk and laugh quite loudly, taking no notice of the fact that all had gone quiet around them. They got some nasty glares from those around but were totally oblivious. They probably still have no idea.

Lest we forget…
