Good evening
.
As part of Armistice Day, we observed a two minute silence today to remember men and women who have died in various conflicts around the world. This silence is a traditional observance of the signing of the Armistice Agreement on the 11 hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, when the guns fell silent bringing an end to World War One. We use this day as a nation to remember not just World War One but all the conflicts, where men and women have given their lives and we hope by doing so, we’ll never forget the price paid for freedom.

This day reminds me most of my dearly departed Grandfather, David Mulholland, now in Glory with Christ.  My Grandfather was a Wellington Bomber Navigator during World War Two and served three tours of duty over three years in Cyprus, the Adriatic and Malta and his crew, were part of only 7% which survived three tours.  I was blessed to grow up hearing his stories of flying, the victories and of course, the loss of a great number of his friends and it’s always made appreciate just what it cost to fight the aggressors. Although Granddad made it back alive, the scars were still open for all to see.
.
So hopefully by this short two minute silence, we can remember not only the fallen in past conflicts but the conflicts which rage on today, thinking of the men and women around the world and the families of those affected by war.
