Remembering and Honoring

Every year on November 11, in grade school, I remember that class would stop at 11:11 o’clock.  Sister Myra, our school principal, announced on the public speakers that it was Armistice Day (later on announced as Veterans Day), and Taps would play. We sat in our seats with our hands folded in prayer, and when Taps was finished, we sat still and quiet for about another minute, then we all got up and said an Our Father, three Hail Marys, and a Glory Be. Class resumed for a little while, Teacher would remind us what the day meant, then it was lunchtime, and the day continued—

Today being Veterans Day, was once known as Armistice Day, has been commemorated every year on November 11 since 1918. The day originally marked the armistice between the allies of World War I and Germany, which became effective at eleven o’clock on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.

Today we honor all our military veterans, whether alive, missing, or gone.©2017 Susan Marie Molloy and all works within.
