Veteran's Day, formerly Armistice Day

I wanted to say something about the significance of this day, but there is no way I could ever top Ed or the Three Good Doctors.

Go to both of these pages and you will read far better commentary than I could ever manage.

Back in junior high, we all had to memorize the poem Flanders Fields, written by Canadian field surgeon John McRae. I had no idea what it was really about until much later, in college.

Once you realize that meaning, you'll never look at a cemetary of any kind in the same way again.
