Thanks for reminding me.
Is it for the entire UK as well?
Yes, sorry, i meant it's for the London bombings.....
they want peopel not just to be silent as a mark of respect but to do it publicly as an act of defiance (towards people who want to use terror to promote their cause)
We are planning to step outside for the 2 minutes.
The whole of Europe is joining us.
I'll try to do it - going to be tricky though - it's lunchtime for the boys and I've got one of DS1's friends over for lunch too [frown]
The last time we had a silence, DS chose that exact moment to sing something, I can't remember the song now but it was a really funny one!
i like that gothicmama!
I wonder how they'll cope with that in nurseries. I suppose they don't even try??
Last time there was two minutes silence was for victims of tsunami, I was in airport with all the DSs and managed to keep them all quiet for the duration - not quite sure how I did it but it was a hell of an achievement.
It's a pity it's not also for victims of terror everywhere..
What, like the 100,000 killed in "collateral damage" in Iraq, and the Afghani schoolchildren killed by US forces personnel in Afghanistan, those victims? I will be thinking of them too.
That would be an achievement beety.
I think most people will think of everyone caught up in terror and war all over the world as well as thinking of those in London.
it would be lovely if there were no posts at all for the entire two minutes wouldn't it? wonder if it'll happen??
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
exactly beety. They don't know/understand why they have to be quiet and tbh i don't expect them do.
I've got 2 young lads in the front room servicing trhe boiler and making noise so if they aren't out in 3 minutes i'm just going to go stand in the garden
