November 11: Armistice Day

I've marked Armistice Day on the blog in previous years, and this year is no exception.

France suffered from the wars of the 20th century like  many others, and the scars remain visible in some places to this day.

It is a holiday in France, for most a day off work, but also a time to reflect on those whose sacrifice ensured the freedom we enjoy today.

While peace may remain as elusive as ever, it remains an ideal worth pursuing even in the times of conflict.
