  1. Hi Barbara,

    It really is important. I'm glad that so many people seem to realize this and participate in the moment.

    There is a move right now to make it a Statutory Holiday. I don't think this is a good idea. If it become a holiday, people might not care to observe the moment. It would just become another day off that people take for granted.

    Thanks for the comment!

  2. Hi Hilary,

    We had a nice ceremony at my school. I think that is really important for the kids to participate in the moment and to help run the assembly. I think if it was just a day off for them that they would lose out on all that.

    Thanks for the comment!
