The Cause of Peace

“We must be prepared to make heroic sacrifices for the cause of peace that we make ungrudgingly for the cause of war. There is no task that is more important or closer to my heart.”
Albert Einstein 1879-1955

November 11 is Veterans Day in the US, a day to honor military veterans. This is a photograph of a section of the Crosses of Lafayette, a controversial war memorial that began as a protest of the Iraq war but is also meant to honor those who have died.


  1. Nov. 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada. People wear red felt poppies in their lapels. In Poland, Nov. 11th is the Polish Independence day as Poland regained its freedom at the end of WW1. My post today is about those two holidays.

  2. Wow, I really thought the page was still loading.

  3. How many dead hopes! Let us hope and pray that we we will be able to make peace on earth.

  4. Your Veterans' Day was our Remembrance Day in Canada and other Commonwealth countries. Heartbreaking but effective image.
