Two Minutes of Time, We Remember


On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a Shoppers Drug Mart store in
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the
store’s PA asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM
to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have
sacrificed so much for us.

In memory of  my grandfather Edward Faour, In WWI he served with the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and was a survivor of the Battle at Beaumont Hamel in France. On July 1, 1916, 733 of 801 men in the 1st Newfoundland Regiment were killed or wounded.

We remember.

  3. Thanks Chrissie.

    I don’t think that was the first time you made me cry with your thoughts. Sometime the only time you don’t run is because the guy next to you didn’t run, and he didn’t run becuse I didn’t run. Neither of us ran because we thought the other guy was so brave.

    I hope you lit up your grandfathers eyes.
