Will you be observing a minutes silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month? (11am November 11th). I think I will be in our local town centre watching the march.

I'll probably be asleep still, so unless I'm talking in my sleep then I will be being silent, but if I am awake, I'll be silent on purpose, I've not seen anywhere selling poppies, maybe when I got to the shopping centre I'll find someone, you always see people asking for donations and selling things that you don't want and as soon as you do want people shaking tins at you, they just aren't about.

I saw on the news an old man was mugged for the money he raised for selling poppies in Essex.

I doubt it. Not being disrespectful but having a small child around kind of makes it impossible to have even a second silence!

I didn't do anything for Veteran's day. I didn't even realize it was Veteran's day until my daughter came home from school and started talking about the Veterans that came and talked to them at school on Thursday. So I talked to her about what a Veteran was and why we celebrate them and told her how her Papa (my dad) was a Veteran and had fought in a war. I don't think she really understood it though because she doesn't get that her Papa was once young and in the Marine Corps. She just knows he drives the trains, lol. I don't know if there were any parades around us but I did think of my dad on Saturday and all the Vietnam vets that got such a poor response when they returned home. Our town does do a Memorial Day parade in May and the Vietnam vets got a standing ovation from the entire crowd watching. It was very moving.

It's really good that the children are told about the wars and get to meet some of the old soldiers etc. I'm sure your daughter will understand when she's older. It's excellent that your town has its own Memorial Day parade, I hope you're proud of your town for doing that. Thank you for responding.
