Kingdom of Chaos: 11/11/1918

Yea, that helmet is frightening.

Goodness, this post moved me to tears. Granted I'm hormonal today and would cry at a greeting card commercial. That's not the point. El Jefe, a blogger from Texas, wrote a touching tribute to all veterans and breathes life into the senselessness of World War I.

While the Allies and Germany had agreed to a peace treaty earlier that morning, fighting didn't stop until the appointed time on the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month. Many soldiers died in these precious hours and more would die in the days to come. Sadly, this was a fitting tribute to a war that should never have been fought in the first place.
