At eleven o’clock today, the nation will fall silent for two minutes, to honour those who fought in so many wars. 

It will be at 11 on 11.11.11.

This date and time won’t happen for another hundred years.  The heroes of last century’s wars will be long forgotten.  I’m sad but sure there will be many more to take their place.

Laurence Binyon said it best: 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
