remember it all too well, was in year 6 and had just got home and my mum was watching it on tele. can't believe schools don't even hld a minutes silence anymore(at least mine doesn't. all the students were asking for a minutes silence and none of the teachers seemed to care)

Re: Where are they?

I have noticed that people who are new to the board and post photos don't get as many responses in general as the mods or people who have been on here a long time, sometimes i even think the new peoples pictures are better than the older members/mods pics. not much the mods can do about this though.
