In declaring November 11, 1919 the first Armistice Day, President Wilson said: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.” This year, as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, it is imperative for us to remain committed to principles of peace and understanding, despite the discord and polarization of our current world.
