November 11th

99 years ago.

10 million dead.

On the 11th Day of the 11th Month at the 11th hour, the first World War came to an end. Sadly, the armistice didn’t stop the dying as many of the wounded succumbed in the days, weeks, and months afterwards.

The War to end all wars didn’t end them at all.

Nor did the war shed much light on possibly the most prevailing untreated wound of all—battle fatigue currently known as PTSD.

Tomorrow, as many around the world take time to remember their dead and those of us in the US honor those veterans still alive, take a moment to say thanks and to be thankful.

In the words of Winston Churchill when speaking about another war, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few“.

Until next time.
