Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Beyond pop culture's fascination with the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year of this century (or is it the twelfth year?) lies something a bit more profound.
At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in the Year of Our Lord, 1918, Germany signed the armistice that ended The War To End All Wars.
Once it became abundantly clear that The War To End All Wars didn't, maybe it became imperative to distance ourselves from the past. What better way to do that than to honor those who served. As we do that, may we also remember the original reason this day of remembrance was set aside?
It is also worth a mention that The House Blond and her friend Hailey volunteered to serve breakfast to those who once served and are now residents of a retirement home.
