It used to be that Armistice Day (aka Veterans Day) was the one day of the year when I was sure to wear a tie. It was out of respect for those who have fought for Freedom. My own experience in the armed forces was rather serene, compared to what others have endured. I wanted to show my appreciation and admiration for the real heroes.
The original Armistice Day was November 11, 1918…the 11th month, the 11th day, on the 11th hour…and it was hailed as the end of the “War to end all wars.” I wish it were so, but it hasn’t turned out that way. Millions more have died in armed conflict…on our streets and on the battlefield. God, help us all.
So it is that I took a fresh look at Armistice today, and here is my conclusion: I’m looking for the Peace that ends all war, and I hope it begins today. What if the whole world were to stop and listen? What would happen then?
In my own life, I’ve begun a fresh assessment of who I am and where I’m headed. The best place to begin is in the beginning, so why not return there and re-evaluate?
