11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month

By BillRookery
Another image from summertime

So many men have fallen, so many lives were lost;
The price to pay for freedom exacts a heavy cost.
Dare we forget the battles that raged on foreign shores,
And live in ease and comfort, far from the cannon's roars?

Maybe it is pointless
To wish for lasting peace
For all mankind to lay down arms
For all fighting to cease
I could despair of seeing
Peace throughout the land
No longer hearing talk of war

May your God hold them in peace
May Love flow over the Earth and cleanse us all
This day and for always
