The 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month…
So read the Armistice order in November, 1918. And the guns fell silent.
Today, the English speaking world Remembers … it is Remembrance Day, honoring the dreadful sacrifice of an entire generation on the fields of France and Flanders.
We in the US have broadened this holiday to honor all our military veterans. Take a moment to thank them for their service!
