Remembrance Day...

At the Eleventh hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh month of 1918 in Compiegne, France, Allied Forces and Germany ceased hostilities on the Western front of WW1...

Lest we forget...

For Arnold and Jean Louis, 
And today's heroes...John, Gunny, Richard, Mike, Tania, Joshua, Aaron and Limek and so many others...

Thank you for the gift of FREEDOM...

Note to readers: I have just been listening to Kyrie - The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace featured on Rachel's blog http://attica-slowlife.blogspot.com/

Breathtaking! Stop by to enjoy!


  1. I saw your comments on Gillian's blog about your grandfathers serving, I had to visit. When I read it to my husband he said they must have served in WW1, because of the mustard gas & trenches. Was it WW1?

    My grandfather, from Lowell, Massachusetts, USA, also served in France during WW1. It would be something if they knew each other!

  2. Hello and yes, it was WW1. Sadly I could never ask 'Bonpapa' as he passed away in 1960 but as I understand it, he served only in the Flanders.
    Have you ever seen the movie called 'Joyeux Noel'?
    It brings to mind not just the hardships of the trenches warfare but the hope soldiers for one moment could and have (!) set aside their differences!
    Thank you for stopping by and Blessings to you and yours,

  3. Hi Noelle - thank you for you comment on my blog. It seems that the two wars have touched so many families and we all have our own heroes.

    Best wishes,

  4. Such a wonderful reminder! On both of our sides, we had family members serve. What an honor and I am so thankful for them!


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
