And, as Armistice/Veteran's Day closes, I want to have this thread to honor and remember all who have died... and not just those who died in a defined war either... but all. AND, I want to offer prayers for healing and for peace for those of us who remain.
Besides the veterans and victims of wars past and present, I also want to remember those who died recently in Finland at a school, the school children who died in Afghanistan, protestors in Burma or even in the USA and elsewhere...,
Please add to this list as you remember and wish...

I would also like us to remember those who fought and lived...and came home to nothing. You see them living on the streets, their bodies and/or minds permanently broken. Cast aside by the very society they sacrificed their youth and promise for, they carry their back packs and push their shopping carts, hoping for enough change to eat today ...and maybe feed that dog that is their only true friend in a country that has forgotten them.
