On Veterans Day

cute

Another year gone by, and our longest war still carries on….with no end, or solution in sight. And crass patriotism continues to be consumed like pornographic pablum by a society that knows this day, as a day off from work and mattress sales….

This Veterans Day, remember not only those who wore the uniform…but also those with a fur coat. No truer comrade than ‘man’s best friend’.

If you have the opportunity, find a WWII veteran, and introduce yourself and especially your children. As we commemorate the 11th hour of the 11th day of 1918…we do so with no living witness to that carnage. The day will come very soon, where we say the same when we observe V-E and V-J days.
