Armistice Day

I was sitting in a meeting in London today, and around 10:58 one of the members of the group started to fidget with his watch and mentioned to the Chairman that it ws almost 11. The Chairman said, "Yes, I know, we have a lawyer waiting and that can get expensive."

Just the night before I watched a piece on UK-History where they interviewed the last three British survivors from WW-I, and one of them remarked something to the effect of, "Please remember the Germans too." Truly graceful given how ugly that war was.

About a minute later in the meeting the point was made again, to be followed by "Yes, we are wrapping it up." Finally, someone else said, "Armistice Day," and that jogged the Chairman's memory, so we took two minutes for a moment of silence in Remembrance. It was touching to see that more than a few still care.
