In Little Cypress we have been thinking about why people wear poppies at this time of year. We watched the CBeebies Remembrance clip and talked about why the animals in the clip felt sad when people were fighting.
Today, at 11.00am on the 11th day of the 11th month we all stopped to remember those who died in different wars. We stayed completely quiet for two minutes.
As conflicts continue to blight our planet, including those in Afghanistan and Ethiopia, today we remember those affected by war and violence. Our hope is that our children can grow old in a more peaceful world.
Lest we forget:
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.
For the Fallen by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), published in The Times newspaper on 21 September 1914.
