Today we had the Remembrance Day ceremony in school, and the first thing they say is "Please refrain from clapping, as silence is respectful during this solemn occasion" or something like that. What do you know, everyone starts clapping after the first speaker is introduced. After we're all told not to clap, some girl behind me starts clapping after the next event, and when she notices no one else is clapping she says "No?" Anyway, at the beginning a group of Cadets came in carrying the Canadian flag and the flag of my province. Everyone had to stand up for them. Once the flag-carriers where done everyone sat down, but then the band began playing O Canada so we hastily stood up again. Then when the band was done everyone sat down again, but then the band started playing God Save the Queen and everybody got back up again! And the microphone was of terrible quality and I could hardly make out what the speakers where saying, something about "Order of Canada" or "free cheese pizza", I couldn't tell. All in all, not the best Remembrance ceremony I've been to.
