100 years ago today

World War 1 ended. It was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Sadly, it did not.

And while in the US, we take today to honor those still living who fought to preserve our freedom, the world and we also remember those who have fallen.

As our TV is rife with movies and documentaries on the Second World War, take a moment out to learn more about WW1.

America’s Museum devoted to the first World War:

Britain’s website, designed for school-age children, but still an awesome resource:

Take a glance at the art legacy crafted by ordinary soldiers:

And these haunting sculptures designed to honor the fallen of WW1 (google them to see them at night):

Pause for a moment today and remember.

And as always, thank you for your service.
