Do we need a silence?

Every year, once a year, we have silence, quiet, hush.
We say it is to remember the dead, the lost, the harmed.
Some say it glorifies war, horror, pain.
Some say it is boring, useless, unimportant.

Today the sky is filled with clouds, rain, tears
and again we will stand, sit, wait
for the two minutes, the 120 seconds, the pause;
and find a gap in our busy lives, our work, our family
a time we can remember, think, consider

but will we?

In a short 2 minutes what will you do?

  1. I will remember those who were lost in times of conflict, those who payed the highest price for the freedom of others.

  2. We do need it and we need to make sure that the younger generations who seem to be all about me, my needs, my rights learn to respect those who died so they could have the freedom they are afforded nowadays.

  4. I've blogged about this yesterday, for me it is needed, it helps remind our younger generations of the sacrifices people made for them.
