la fête de l'Armistice 2015

Today in France, the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I is remembered with a national holiday.  Ceremonies are conducted throughout the country.  The war's cease fire began at 11:00 am on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.  Lest we forget the price we pay for aggression and war.


  1. I always miss the ceremonies in Versailles because I'm too lazy in the mornings.
    Yes, like you and I both said today, lest we forget...

  2. Some of the rituals to the ceremony will be quite similar to the ones held here, I expect.

  3. Looking at this after last Friday night is even more poignant...
