100th Armistice Day (Veterans Day in the USA)

A few thoughts about this day. One can google a wealth of information regarding the history of this day in the world. Since my mind gravitates towards remembering, given that a part of my work while in the Army was to honor fallen comrades, the origin of this holiday sticks with me.

It was a day to honor peace and the end of war, and the words associated have a lovely feel to them. “At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends.” (History Channel)

Remembering this day with the original spirit of it helps me to appreciate it and honor it in a deeper way.
