Remembrance day is a day where we as a nation take a moment of silence to remember the soldiers who bravely and courageously fought for our countries freedom but sadly lost there lives in World War 1. World War 1 began on the 28th of July 1914 and lasted until the November 11th 1918. Remembrance day has now taken place in the 11th month of the 11th day of the 11th hour ever since the war has ended. On this day a poppy is worn to show the respect to the soldiers who have lost their lives in World War 1 but also the red poppy has become a very well known and respected emblem because of the poem "In Flanders Fields". Remembrance day is not only significant in our nation, many other countries still do the moment of silence for the ones who lost their lives fighting for there country. I believe that this is why we as a country should pay more attention to this day and the ones we lost because they are the reason we live in a free country.
