Today is November 10. That means that tomorrow is November 11, which is fairly obvious. It is also Armistice Day or Remembrance Day. It marks the end of World War 1. The eleventh month November, the eleventh day, at the eleventh hour was the day peace was declared and papers were signed, in the year 1918. Ninety-six years ago and all veterans who were part of that era are gone. The last veteran died a year or two ago, maybe more.
Davey Fury and the Dubliners
There is no way to “celebrate” this day. But some countries mark the day and the moment by holding a minute of silence in respect.
The song that always breaks me into tears is this song by the Dubliners. (I posted it before, but oh well.)
Remembrance is too often left absent in life, when it can only be done by those still alive.
