Veterans Day/Armistice Day

The U.S. holiday honoring veterans takes place on Armistice Day, the date of the end of the “War to End All Wars.” Of course, war has raged unabated since that time, but what better way to honor veterans than to turn our hearts and minds and hands toward a world at peace?

  1. I hadn’t thought about it that way, but now you mention it, “promoting peace” could be one succinct way of describing my profession–teaching people how they can get more of what they need from others in ways that build bridges, rather than burning them. Hard to believe, but one can actually get more than they would by engaging in a power struggle or by settling for a lukewarm compromise.

    I have a strong sense of agreement with Margaret. There are ways to be used between people that can encourage peace, not war. I watch carefully when I read or see news for the words that are used that almost, hidden, base the news on confrontation; laying blame which causes an outcome of a winner and a loser; for ugly, useless vocabulary used because the speaker can’t think of or doesn’t know of better more concise words to use. This seems small perhaps but often it is best to start small so that at that place and time there is a positive result. After this, the ripple effect can grow and become effective in larger and larger fields.
