Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day and the rain is falling as relentlessly as the tears of every woman who has lost her children to war. Come 11 am, I will stop and observe a minute of silence in honor of those who have fallen.  And I will pray, however unrealistic it may seem, that the children of our future will have no need of such a tradition because war will be unknown.

    Such an important remembrance — and an even more important prayer.
