  What's a minute or two of our lives compared to the years they gave?
  The remembrance day poem starts;
  I remember when I was young
a strange day in a crowded town
everyone rushing and then a bell
people stood like statues and silence fell
  Buses halted, although planes still flew
factories stopped and offices too
and then I heard my Mother say
"Remember, this is Poppy Day"
  We all live such hectic lives these days
as we rush around and round
forgetting its poppy day,
and forgetting those so still in the ground
  So take a minute of your life to remember
a minute's so much less than the years
of their lives, they gave for me and you
and remember the survivors and their tears

"Really lovely and moving , well done!"
Alison Davey

I looked at the website and after listening to the song and seeing the photos I was filled with such emotion that I am still crying now as I write this email.
You have done an incredible job putting this together and I really do feel privileged to be part of it. I wish everyone huge success.
