Remembering ...

Veterans Day honors all who have served
in the armed forces, but only them.

Upon this anniversary of Armistice Day,
let us remember the others -
those who have fought to end war,
the peacebuilders,
the foreign diplomats,
ambassadors,
public servants,
Red Cross workers,
doctors without borders ...

Let us remember that
there's always an alternative to violence
and celebrate those who find peaceful solutions.
