On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day,
in the eleventh month of 2008
10,000 people joined The Royal British Legion at Trafalgar Square in
London for a two minutes silence
to mark the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War.
Following the Silence, guests were invited to scatter
poppy petals in the fountains in a symbolic act of Remembrance as the
Fron Choir sang a
hauntingly beautiful and very moving rendition of "Amazing Grace".
John Hurt read the poem
"Do not stand at my grave and weep"
and Rolf Harris, Hayley Westenra and Blake
gave performances to the assembled crowd.
