2 Minutes Silence (Armistice Day Tribute)
Either 1 or 2 minutes.
The last time I heard of that happening was on Sunday, December 14, 1980 at 14:00 (2 PM) New York time.
A martyr is someone who died for what they believed in, first of all. It's respectful to take 2 minutes of silence and think of everybody who died for what they believed was right. I don't know why 2 minutes, but it's for honoring martyrs.
It ended on November 11th the day where we have 1 or 2 minutes silence
its not really 92 seconds it is 2 minutes
no song, as it is 2 minutes of silence. I think the tune you are looking for, however, is called 'The Last Post'.Actually, after the 2 minutes of silence "The Last Post" is played followed by "The Rouse"... if you wikipedia it, you will find the sheet music for both :)
