100-Years Later: Sacrifices, Lessons Learned, Lost, Regained and Yet Threatened Anew

This is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I. Humanity's sacrifices were extraordinary in securing the peace out of the conflict that lasted from 1914-1918. We honor those who served to ensure a world order of cooperation and peace.

Valuable lessons learned from WWI of the necessity for stability and rational cooperation and government, were soon lost as humanity descended into World War II. After that war humanity has endeavored not to repeat the mistakes of the past.

Yet, after all the human sacrifices and losses associated with two world wars, humanity today, 100-years after the Armistice of WWI, finds itself under a similar atmosphere of division, apathy, hate and violence that were all prevalent leading up to both wars.

Therefore, that those who sacrificed themselves for freedom may not have died in vain, the lessons of empathy, cooperation and unity must be re-learned any blatant attempt to punish whole nations of people because of their differences from other people, must be rejected. Here's to lasting peace and international cooperation.
