Nov. 11, 2017 Armistice Day

Today is the 99th anniversary of the end of WWI. The armistice happened on the eleventh second of the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

For many it ended four years too late. Some thought it would be over quickly. One surprise attack and the opponent would sign a piece of paper and disappear. The wealthy and powerful saw their empires fall beneath angry mobs. The war did not end, it simply took on new forms and returned with new ferocity. I watch my phone and it shows old news in color.

You can say a war is over all you want. The war continues. If you think achieving justice is too expensive, remember injustice costs much more.
