11/11

     It is, as I point out most years, Armistice Day.  The day has been repurposed, nobly enough, but along about 1100, you might want to stop for a minute, stop and remember why and who; stop and remember the war that shaped the world you grew up in and the men who fought and fell in it, the war that, finally, staggered to a stop at 11:00 a.m., 11 November, 1918

Done, and thank you.

I'm watching the national service being broadcast live, as it always is, from the War Memorial in Ottawa.
