November 11 marked the official end of a brutal, vicious, deadly conflagration that destroyed Europe and solved nothing while sewing the seeds of another vicious, deadly conflagration that destroyed Europe; and because it was over for a long time and we moved onto to other, sexier wars, a few years later it was demoted to Arbor day and then a few years after that it was promoted to Veterans Day. Yay soldiers.
There are no more WWI survivors in America. You would think we should be prompted to remember it officially. You remember WW1? Killed millions, introduced chemical warfare? Had the sad fate of sharing the lime light with the flu pandemic and the Russian Revolution?
That World War One. Lest we forget.
