100th Anniversary of the WWI Armistice

The Liberty Memorial lit up with poppies to
commemorate the WWI armistice.

Did you know Veteran's Day used to be called Armistice Day? That is because November 11 is the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I? Today is the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.

The United States' official World War I monument and memorial is the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City. It, and other buildings in downtown KC has been spectacularly lit to commemorate the end of the war. If you can get to KC to see the lighting and the amazing museum at the memorial, I urge you to do so.

Thank you to our veterans for their service to our nation. 

Our usual "Sunday Fun" feature will return next week.
