Iím of the opinion that taking a minute to stop and reflect is a good thing and as we donít do it at the drop of a hat then I am happy to take part and proud that we all observe it in silence.
I prefer the silence rather than clapping which was only brought in because some crowds couldnít show that respect.

Or wouldn't. A display of respect must not be obligatory. Applause is a suitable celebration of a life rather than mourning a death by silence. .

I agree with that, in which case you can silently think about the other people you feel deserve the respect. It doesn't have to be a minute for the person who is named.
