As the world commemorates the centenary of the start of the First World War, use these visuals with your own 2 minute silence to commemorate the millions of lives lost during WW1.

This film contrasts the busyness of contemporary daily life with the daily act of remembrance at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium, and the chimes of Big Ben leading into two minutes of silent reflection.

Words of Scripture hang in the silence as we remember the 16 million who lost their lives and the millions who have died and been affected by subsequent conflicts around the world.

[NOTE: film is timed with a countdown to begin playing at 10:58, with exact timings through the 11 am silence.]
