Armistice Day

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, Armistice was declared and the end of World War I was achieved.  Since that time, November 11th has been celebrated as Armistice Day.  In the U.S., it has also become a day to honor our Veterans.

Today, I honor all of those nations, whose youth proudly served in World War I.  The poem In Flanders Fields by Canadian, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD, is a haunting reminder of the costs of war.  May all countries touched by war find peace.
