I just found a lovely, haunting song, about the ' Two Minute Silence '
Called:
' A Pittance of Time ',
I've converted this to MP3 format, and put it on my website for all to listen to: ( Speakers on please ! )
It's at bottom of Peter Southern's page:

The song says it all !

Tom, this song is wonderfully touching. I worry for the two young men, family members, that are in Iraq right now. May God speed their return home. May all our service men and women, return home alive and in good health. Betty Lockey, a friend of mine and Taffy's. Her daughter had to come home from Iraq, she was seriously ill and is now in a U.S military hospital. I couldn't give you all the details here, but she told me there are others coming home with similar conditions. Her daughter is not doing very well. She said. Thank you for posting this song. I will always remember to take two minutes.

What a moving song - in the folk style, Thanks Tom,
