There are approximately 1,013,913 words in the English language but I could never string any of them together to explain how incredible I think you are.
Moral of the story: Your thighs are fine. Work it, ladies. You’re all gorgeous

ARMISTICE DAY, referred to as Remembrance Day or Veteran’s Day in other countries, is a holiday commemorating the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany, on November 11, 1918, bringing the First World War to a close. Armistice Day commemorates the ceasefire. In the United States, Veteran’s Day honors all veterans of all conflicts (an entirely different focus than commemorating peace).
There is nothing romantic or noble or patriotic or heroic about war. It is an ugly hell begun by people who don’t fight, and suffered by people who just want to live. A soldier has more in common with the ‘enemy’ soldier than with his own leader. And those leaders have more in common with each other than with the people they send out to die.
The evil powers we’re told need to be removed are hiding in bunkers and spider-holes. Those thousands and millions of dead are your fathers and sons and mothers and daughters. They are your brothers and sisters. They are you. The cause of the bloodshed is sitting protected far from harm, regardless of what flag they wrap themselves in.
"Then there was this freedom the little guys were always getting killed for. Was it freedom from another country? Freedom from work or disease or death? Freedom from your mother-in-law? Please mister give us a bill of sale on this freedom before we go out and get killed. Give us a bill of sale drawn up plainly in advance what we’re getting killed for… so we can be sure after we’ve won your war that we’ve got the same kind of freedom we bargained for." - Dalton Trumbo, from Johnny Got His Gun
95 years ago today, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Great War officially ended after 4 brutal years of senseless slaughter. Happy Armistice Day, and never forget the ultimate sacrifice that millions of people, from all over the world, made in those tragic years of 1914-1918.
