how to announce a moment of silence on remembrance day. As well as standing together in Remembrance on 11 November, we also observe a two-minute silence at 11am on Remembrance Sunday.
Our armed forces do incredible things every day, from supporting the UK’s response to Covid-19 to peacekeeping missions.
This year, we’re asking the country to take a deep breath and remember the brave men and women who serve in the armed forces and make sacrifices on our behalf.
In real life sWe can’t rewind sWe can’t fast forward sBut we can pause
Slow Your Breathing and Think
Imagine never knowing what to expect, sOr when you’ll next see your relatives again.
Consider what it would be like to feel uprooted, unsure, and unstable, and to yearn for the comfort of sharing a meal with your loved ones around the table.
Nothing to indicate that things will get back to normal anytime soon
Think about how long these concerns would last.
These are the realities of those who serve on the front lines.
Certainly not only in the past. Today is the day.
For the sake of everyone’s safety, we pause to honor their service. And say… sThank you.
As we do every November, we will stand united this coming November.
Shocking, deafening silence
We’ll give you two minutes to remind us of the brave people who look fear in the face and still say no. Hope is the path I take.
A gentle tune that develops
Is that sound audible from inside your house?
A quiet confidence that things will improve
It brings us together sIt lives in the hearts of those who serve
On testing sites sAnd posts overseas
There is love for one another in every picture and message
aspiration for a more promising tomorrow
Take a moment to reflect on the past two minutes.
