Veterans Day: Here’s to the Heroes
World War I was officially over in 1918 at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (November 11th). It was official: War heroes would now walk their land and head home, kiss their wives, and live their lives as free men. That’s when the world raised their voices to say: “Bring the Boys Back Home”...
Veterans Day may be a North American holidayto honor those who fought and survived WWI, but the whole world has plenty to thank: Nations stand still and pay tribute to those who heroically fought for peace, and today, Mexico News Network joins this respectful date, to honor the real heroes. Those who stood and fought not only for their nation’s welfare, but for the rights of a world free from tyrants.
Europe and the US join and commemorate our war heroes. Parades, speeches and military readings could be heard all over America; thousands of veterans marched up New York’s Fifth Avenue; hundreds of people joined in one voice in to pay tribute to war survivors in Washington DC in a free concert to raise awareness. Massachusetts marked Veterans Day with commemorations around the state including a parade in Boston in which gay and transgender veterans were taking part for the first time. Comedians, celebrities, public speakers and opinion leaders remember those who died for their country by expressing moving and encouraging words.
Europe was silent for a minute, today being the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour, remembering those who valiantly fought for world peace.
Keeping with the United States’ tradition let us take a minute of silence for those who made it home, a prayer for the ones who didn’t...
