This weekend there is no Thought For The Week, Saturday Swishing or Blog Stuff Roundup, these features will return next weekend.
Two minutes silence please
Today is both Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, a day to remember the fallen and those that return from conflicts fought to preserve the chance of a free world. Unfortunately I cannot make my normal trip to the Menin Gate in Ieper (Ypres) this year but I will still be observing the two minute silence at 11 am. Just as important, if not more so, as remembering the fallen of conflicts, is taking care of those that return and need help and support.
Please make a donation
Every year the The Royal British Legion. run The Poppy Appeal in the UK. For those from other countries there is a list of some of the other organisations raising money for and helping veterans, after the clip. Now please take look at some of those trying to raise money to help others that return from conflict zones.
