Veterans' Day, 2008

World War I ended 90 years ago today. 40 million people were killed in the four years of nonstop warfare.

Untold millions, both soldiers and civilians alike, have given their lives in the pursuit of liberty. Do not let their sacrifice be forgotten, and never forget that freedom is not free.

If you can read this, thank your teacher.If you can read this in English, thank a Veteran.
