At 11 o’clock, on the 11th day of the 11th month, we joined with people all over the world in our Service of Remembrance.
This is what the children had to say about it:
“We were thinking about soldiers who died in the war. They gave away a life for another.”
“My Grandad was in World War II. He didn’t die.”
“They fought for us to have freedom.”
“We had to stand respectfully and peacefully.”
“They sacrificed their lives so that we could have a better life.”
“The poppies are the blood of the people, the soul of the person and were on the battlefield.”
