In honor of all those who have served our country. In remembrance for those who lost their lives.
In memory of my grandfather, F.C., who fought in the Great War. His birthday would have been November 2nd. He fought on the front line and in the trenches, and was proud to have served. But he often said that the Great War was supposed to have been "the war to end all wars," and how he wished that would have been true. Maybe some day humans will evolve to the point where we settle conflicts in ways other than violence and destruction.
