CDSP Statement on Armistice Day 2019
The great world war to end all wars ended when hostilities ceased on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 forever to be known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day was meant to commemorate those killed in the appalling slaughter that was the First World War. Shocked and saddened by the killing, which a growing mass media brought more intimately than ever before into lives of those on the home front, it was agreed all around that such senseless and tragic waste must never again be repeated. Armistice Day is an anti-war celebration. It commemorates those, especially in Europe a generation, we need not have lost.
