Precisely 100 years ago, at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I ended.

Many called World War I the "war to end all war," because the weapons used and the large number of civilians who died were so horrific. Little did they know that many soldiers who fought in World War I and survived, would be called upon once again in their middle or advanced ages to fight in the even more horrific, World War II.
When will we humans evolve enough to realize that the taking of human life does not end anything, it only breeds hatred and the learned need to get revenge? I really think that, in the future when histories are written, the two world wars will be merged into one decades-long struggle with a few nations changing sides.
I wish to honor here, all of the veterans from all of our wars. And I am posing the question: When will we ever learn that violence is never a productive answer to anything? I am linking below to the rendition of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" by Peter, Paul, And Mary, which I enjoy the most.

Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, only likes America's soldiers when he wants votes. He can disparage even real Republican war heroes and get away with it. Remember when Sen. John McCain had the temerity to question Potuzzi's qualifications to be our POTUS during the 2016 campaign? Fat Donny's response about McCain was, "He's a war hero 'cause he was captured. I like people who weren't captured. Okay?" This from a man who never served because he had "bone spurs." Sure!
Now, we are celebrating the people who fought and died for our freedom in World War I, 100 years ago. Most of the leaders from allied nations walked through the rain to a site near a battle, where many including Americans, are buried. Who did not attend? Fat Donny and his bromance buddy Vlad the Impaler did not attend. What an insult!
BTW -- When President Obama went to that same cemetery while he was POTUS, he walked among the graves of those great heroes...IN THE RAIN!
But wait...there's more. Fat Donny returned to D.C., and the time came to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery to honor our fallen heroes. Not only did Lyin' Don not attend. Neither did the VPOTUS! That's an insult to EVERY VETERAN!
