World War I Armistice


9 Million dead; 29 Million wounded.

“The war to end all wars”.

Except that it wasn’t.

All the king’s politicians and all the king’s senators still could not put lasting peace together again. So here we are with Iran, China, and Russia and others threatening our call to freedom.

In memorial cemeteries around the world WWI headstones shine in the sun and glisten in the rain. They are the keyboards of our past.

Each soul lost in its final keystroke…

Serving the future with their Truths.

Sacrifice entries in the journals of family pain.

It is our Flag that must continue to fly high in honor of all lives lost in all our past wars. Let Freedom Ring. What is right is not left. What is right is our Constitution and our Bible.

We dither and accuse with our parsing of the Truth. It must stop or we are lying in the face of our God. For it is only to God to whom we can turn for Hope and a future.

Our children can no longer look up as they are glued to their hand-held phones.

Each keystroke available because of the sacrifice of a life.

May WWI still not be in vain….


Salute! (Taps)
