Today, we celebrate both Armistice Day, the end of World War I, and, in America, Veterans Day.

A misquotation George Orwell--but a good one nevertheless--says that
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Those words are very true, so take a moment today to thank a veteran for the service rendered to you and the entire nation.
