Good morning, it’s Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, Veterans Day. In the nation’s capital, the occasion will be commemorated with a “Bells of Peace Ceremony” at the new National World War I Memorial. The event includes a wreath laying, the reading of the Archibald MacLeish poem “The Young Dead Soldiers Do Not Speak,” and an 11 a.m. tolling of bells, followed by a performance of “Taps” echoing from buglers in WWI uniforms. All of it in homage to those who served in the “Great War,” and to remember the armistice that finally ended it at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.
