They Were Wrong

It was the war to end all wars.   
They couldn’t imagine that such carnage was possible.  
Chivalry, gallantry and honor were dead.  
Without that, what good war? 
They thought it the last war ever fought.   
They celebrated its end.  Declared a holiday, Armistice Day.  They were wrong.  
So, they changed it to Memorial Day.


  1. if only we could see the end of war...and war def changed...we mechanizes, entrenched, depersonalized which put honor&chivalry out the window...tight little piece man...

  2. war is intrinsic to humanity I think. this country especially has been at war for nearly every year of its existence.

  3. The 11th Hour, of the 11th Day, of the 11th Month.
    THAT peace lasted just 22 years!
    Very nice Holiday Post Mr. C
    Loved your tribute and Pic.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. "...what good war?"
    Excellent question, fitting tribute.

  5. This is really good. I walked around the cemetery today with my son to think about all the death from war and commemorate those who served. The world of war is only going to get worse, and that is saying a lot, as I don't know of any good war.

  6. Armistice... I like the sound of that much better. but not to be...


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
