Today, we "celebrate / acknowledge / remember" the anniversary of the signing of the armistice ending World War I (November 11th, 1911). I'm confident those who signed that agreement were hoping that it was an agreement that would end wars as a means of settling conflict. Sadly, it was not. So today, we "celebrate / acknowledge / remember" those who serve or who have served in the military. We all know someone who has served or is serving today and this is a day to offer our prayers for them, and to pray for peaceful settling of conflicts between people.
