Two minutes silence for Armistice Day

I just watched the BBC World News coverage of the two minutes of silence at 11:00 on the 11th day of the 11th month.

I am speechless.

We must never forget nor trivialize the sacrifice of those who gave their blood, their limbs, or even their lives in the defense of our nation and our freedom. By the same token, we must never take lightly the decision to send our soldiers into harm's way.
