Thought For The Day – Friday 11th November 2022
Today, and every day, we remember, and in so doing, we respect. Respice, Aspice, Prospice.
At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a moment going back to the end of The First World War, we remember those who have served and sacrificed, and those who still serve and sacrifice. For our tomorrow, they gave, and still give, their today.
We will remember them.
We remember those who suffer, and have suffered, because of conflict around the world.
We remember the emergency services.
We remember the victims of terrorism.
We remember families.
We take this opportunity to remember all who have loved and inspired us, and all who continue to love and inspire us.
After having something to eat and drink at break from 10:20 to 10:40, students will register in tutor groups, and then assemble, pause, remember, respect and reflect for our Service of Remembrance, led by Mr. Reeve, with wonderful contributions from the Music Department, at The Bishop’s Stortford High School. We stand in silence to remember and respect as a school, local, national and international community on this very moving and important occasion.
At the same time, on Remembrance Sunday, the United Kingdom, and beyond, will assemble, pause, remember, respect and reflect, led by King Charles III, with wonderful musical contributions, at The Cenotaph War Memorial in London. We stand in silence to remember and respect as a local, national and international community on this very moving and important occasion.
