And if you try, you might be able to imagine the enemy, and see that he is not so different from you.In One Minute's Silence, you are the story, and the story is yours - to imagine, remember and honour the brothers in arms on both sides of the conflict, heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives.A moving and powerful reflection on the meaning of Remembrance Day.
