All of our veterans from our myriad nations.

Yes, it's one of the greatest sacrifices.

But it would be better if we could all end and avoid wars sometime in the near future.

It is the greatest sacrifice, MMMmmm. If you do nothing else in memory of those who made this sacrifice, read this and try to keep your eyes dry: http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/flanders.htm

Agree with all of you.

90 years since World War I ended yesterday. 2-minutes silences observed round the globe, I expect.

Lions led by donkeys.
I think of them with sadness.

We tried to do it at playgroup but silence was impossible to achieve with 20 small yelling children. The thought was there though!

At some Scottish football grounds, they had a one minute applause instead of a silence. The reason ? They knew that the silence would be interupted by morons. A sad indictment on our society.

Oh, if war could be avoided completely, great. Then again, human beings are human beings...

Sad, but I don't see that happening in my lifetime or in hundreds of years.
