Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month-1918

Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month President Eisenhower dedicates this time stamp as Veterans Day for United States 8 years after war ends. November 11, 1918 Allied nations and Germany ceased fire and torment due to armistice(truce) that went into affect the eleven hour, eleventh Day and eleventh month in 1918 Versailles France. United States Congress recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words: Quoted from the Department of Veterans Affairs "Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples." Reiterating what Veterans Day truly meant to solidify; Peace Within Nations and People. It meant the marking of War and massive destruction no longer being needed, the marking of nations having recognized that war brings destruction and parting of people, the marking of opposing viewpoints agreeing that the fighting was not creating something of value for humanity, the earth and good will. This day symbolizing that our freedom was fought for by generations past and future with much to lose, much to gain and still somehow trying to implement the lesson we learned almost 100 years ago. Society today has everything to lose and everything to gain from our fore fathers past; take not for granted the millions of flags posted today and everyday and remember those who have fought for this great nation we gather to impact daily. As the original intent, One With Care invites you to Commemorate this day with Thanksgiving and Prayer to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding.
