Today at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 France remembers Armistice

Today at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 France remembers Armistice that makes the end of the First World War.

It is hard to imagine that millions of lives were lost right here in the area that I now call home, I try to imagine those times specially when I see all the traces around the farm still reminding everybody that almost 80% of our village was destroyed, needles to say I’m honored to be here today among my new family and friends remembering those lives that were lost.
