In these USA we have observed Armistice Day, commemorating the 11th day of the 11th month when, at the 11 hour, 99 years ago, hostilities ceased and WWI closed. This coincides with US Veteran’s Day and UK Remembrance Day.
For those of you who don’t know much about the UK’s observance of Remembrance Day, you might see this. This year, Queen Elizabeth did not attend at the Cenotaph. Remembrance Day, as I understand it, is observed in the Sunday closest to 11 November.
The coverage is predictably correct, politically. However, there is a great deal of interest. And we do well to remember the tremendous events which are memorialized in this moments… lest they be repeated.
