War is not a solution.
Nothing to be glorified.
But regardless
We should always
Those who did fight.
To ensure we all
Can live a better life.

    It's the Armistice or however you write this, isn't it?
    We don't celebrate that date in Portugal but we should...instead we celebrate a saint (S. Martinho) which means eating roasted chestnuts and red wine ;Pwe are crazy people!

    Devil Mood;
    Yes, it is called Remebrance Day here in Canada and everyone wears a red poppy pin; most Canadians take it very seriously, actually.
    I want to hear more about your St. Martinho Day, though!

    We must indeed never forget the heroes and the families they left behind. xox

    WE forgot it was veterans day and went up to secretary of state to get the car plates renewed, only to be surprised in finding them closed.

    On many of the war memorials in England is written "Lest We Forget".

    I find that simple thought so moving and yet we continue to forget.

    As an American iving in Germany, war is never far from one's consciousness, nor is the sacrifice of our fathers.

    Oh you wear poppies too? I thought it was only in the UK. I don't know much about S. Martinho to be honest: there's usually bonfires and people say "S.Martinho castanhas e vinho" - which is rhyme saying chestnuts and wine. S.Martinho is also connected to Indian Summer, so instead of saying Indian Summer we call it S.Martinho Summer. But it's too hot even for Indian Summer, it's 25ยบ...crazy weather!
    Enjoy your Rememberance Day :)
