I don't wear a poppy, a red one or a white one, but I don't mind if you do. And I understand why you do, and I respect your decision.
I won't be deliberately silent for two minutes at 11am, but I don't mind if you are. And I understand why you will, and I respect your decision to do so. I won't go around talking to you, or bothering you, because I know you want to mark Armistice Day. And that's fine by me.
I won't say nothing on Twitter, because that isn't going to work. Twitter is a vibrant medium with people from many time zones and from many backgrounds taking part. But I don't mind if you want to be quiet on there to show your respects. I will probably avoid the whole place, to be honest.
I know that everyone's trying to do the right thing - and so am I. I know there are loads of reasons for people wanting to mark today as a special day, and I totally understand; it's just that I am not going to. This doesn't mean I don't respect people who have died fighting for their country, or in any conflict whether as a participant or as a victim, because I do. It just means that I won't be joining in.
