Veteran's Day

In a time when the world is never all still, and holidays' are for stores to make money off of, it's good to remember the reason why we have these holidays. November 11 marked the official end of World War I, in 1918, at 11 in the morning. At that time, it was called" the war to end all wars" and the"Great war". Unfortunately, it was not, but it marked a great loss of lives for soldiers and civilians. Take only a second, if you will, to remember their lives, and what they have done. The past isn't just the past, but can be part of the present, and can shape the future, too.
