Armistice Day

Also known as Remembrance Day or Veterans Day or Poppy Day, is on 11 November and commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France.

At 11am, the signing marked for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. Perhaps the hope is to never again witness such a human tragedy.

A few decades later, we fought another world war, which sparked the greatest transformation of America. 

Today, we remember all of the sacrifices and we note that every generation fights a war. Some generations have no choice but to fight a ugly one . . . some, have the opportunity to fight a good one.

Make your battle count, that is how history will judge all of us.
