So today after my interning, I finally made it down to tower bridge to take in the beautiful roses. For those who are unaware, each rose represents every soldier lost in the world war. A total of 888, 246 red poppies, to remind us of the blood lost in the war.
Every year on the 11th month, on the 11th day, on the 11th hour, a 2 minute silence is held to mark the anniversary of Armistice Day, which is the exact day of which the World War One ended in 1918.
It was honestly breathtaking and rather emotional. I had to hold in my tears. As a tradition, it reminds us of our soldiers. The atmosphere is very tense, yet calm at the same time. Hundreds of people gathered to visit the memorial, bringing back the reality of British History.
