Two Minutes Silence

Today, as all over the country, myself and the people on the course with me took part in a two minutes silence to remember those who were killed last week in the terrorist bombs in London.

2 Minutes Silence

Unlike other silences, for example for Rememberance Sunday, everybody was asked to go and stand on the street to give a visible indication of the numbers, and I have to say by doing that it made it a much more moving experience – seeing a major London road come to a complete halt, and thousands of people standing in total silence was incredible, and I hope sends a very visible message.

Of course it wasn’t without difficulties – trying to fit all the people in the four eight floor office blocks onto the pavement was a bit of a squeeze, as somebody said, a bit like trying to squeeze onto a tube train – in a strange way rather fitting.
