11/11, today, is Veterans Day. Created when WW1, the Great War, the war to end ALL wars that in reality spawned another a scant twenty years later ended at 11AM on November 11th 1918.We keep thinking of the many lives wasted that fateful morning as the forces on both sides awaited the inevitable announced ceasefire while both sides killed without abandon till deadline. What a tragic squandering of lives.
