Remembrance Sunday - Social Media Overflows With Tributes

heavywhalley
It is the time of year when we remember those who gave their lives for our country. Most will have been wearing their poppies since the beginning of the month and yesterday the country came together for its annual Remembrance Parades.

Social media was filled with tributes, reminders and photographs in honour of those who have fought for us.
Many have lost loved ones and even those who haven't still paid their respects yesterday as troops paraded, old and young. Of course, the main event happened in London yesterday noon as Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family marched towards the Cenotaph Memorial to place to poppy wreaths. Prime Minister David Cameron was also present. Pictures were taken of all those who have fought and are there to represent the soldiers they may have known who lost their lives, on duty alongside them. Whether or not they could walk was and will never be an excuse not to be at the parades.
These parades are to remember those who lost their lives in WW1 and WW2 but also all those other battles where lives are till being taken. @BBCNews posted a collection of photgraphs of the soldiers who lost their lives just this year.
Unfortunately there were those who had no respect on this day. A group of people were filmed causing damage to some Commonwealth War graves in a Libyan cemetery. As you can imagine it sparked a huge uproar and today we are all hoping to move on from this terrible incident.  This protest was caused after the Koran was burned by US soldiers in Afghanistan. President Obama has since apologised, but of course the graves destroyed have left some angry. But let's not dwell on those who do not appreciate the movement and have a look at how social media reacted to this wonderful tribute of a day.




Today we remember the men, women and animals who paid the ultimate sacrifice to secure and protect our freedom. #remembrancesunday

Two minutes of silence were observed in London yesterday and all over the country. Even if you only did one minute, your time was spent remembering all of the men, women and, yes, animals who lost gave their lives and others who will continue to do so. We will always remember. Wednesday is Armistice Day when another minute of silence will occur. For now, we keep seeing all the wonderful tributes on social media but all around us as people wear their poppies with pride.

Lest we forget.
