One Hundred Years Ago, the Guns Stopped

There's not much I can add to the commemoration of the Armistice. I dearly wish more people understood it's importance to be remembered.


  1. There is a marker outside a place the Tommy's called "Wipers" (Yeppre). It simply says. "Three hundred thousand men with no known grave" The tourist do't stop much anymore. Each night a local firefighter plays "The Last Post." and go's home. But now even the great grandchildren of WW1 are fading away. I wonder how much longer until even the Europeans forget?---Ray

    1. Sic transit gloria mundi, my friend and I suppose so also the horrors. I just wish the hard won wisdoms weren't lost as quickly.
