The 11th November is Armistice Day, pausing for a two minutes silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month.
12-13th of November is Remembrance Weekend with special attention on the Sunday for full commemorative services across the country and across the world whether they take place in church, mosque, temple, abbey, at a memorial or at home.
The Poppy is the symbol of a lost life at war.
Everyone has love, loved; loss, lost. Reflection and memories require time and attention and Emotion can sometimes be indefinable (poetry can help express what we struggle to find in simple words).
Whatever the conflict, feelings are universal.
Emotion has no boundary or divide; it instinctively unite us, wherever in the world you stand.
