Now Veterans' Day, originally Armistice Day--the end of WWI.

This quote from Remarque's classic applies for all veterans of war:

"We are not youth any longer. We don't want to take the world by storm. We are fleeing from ourselves, from our life. We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world; and we had to shoot it to pieces."

Thanks to those living, and requiescat in pace to those who have gone.
