Armistice Day Observance To Be Held On Zoom

Veterans for Peace

Armistice Day message from Ed Flaherty:

Veterans For Peace, Chapter 161 is holding space with a traditional Armistice Day Observance on Zoom.

You are invited to be there with us as we celebrate the peace that the world felt at the end of WWI and at the same time remember the fallen on all sides and recognize the victims of wars throughout the world.  Fast forward 102 years to today.  Although we cannot celebrate peace we can work towards it.  We can recognize the victims of war throughout the world, including the damage to Mother Earth herself.

Please join us at 10:45 AM CST on November 11 for opening remarks. We plan to ring the bell 11 times promptly at 11 AM followed by a minute of silent reflection.

Many thanks to PEACE Iowa who arranged to have David Swanson, co-founder of World Beyond War deliver the concluding remarks.
