The Sunday closest Armistice Day of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the end of World War I, the war to end all wars which saw an estimated death toll of 40 million. It merely became a pre-cursor to a bigger war. World War II which saw an estimated again death toll of 70-85 million lives.
This is one of two days we remember the people who gave their all, their blood, their sweat, their tears and ultimately, their lives.
We owe little in this world, but we owe the fallen and those that came back to remember them, what happened, what they saw and did, what those that came back have had to live with, they can’t forget their experiences and nor should we.
We live in a very divisive time politically, racially, etc...
We need to learn from yesterday, so it’s not repeated tomorrow.
Lest We Forget The Men Of Yesterday Who Gave Their Todays For Our Tomorrow’s.
