Today is Remembrance Day in the UK, it is also known as Armistice day or sometimes Poppy day.
It is also Veteran's day in the USA - my friend Elizabeth has her tribute here
There is a lot of talk these days about whether we should be 'glorifying war' on this day but generally it is understood that this about Peace, and remembering and honouring the people who fought for their countries in wars.
It is the anniversary of the time when the peace treaty was signed to end the First World War at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

I drew the hearth based on a sketch I saw in a magazine and added some touches of paint.
The poppies were painted on first then drawn into.
I added some spatters and the first line of the song.
Here is a link to the song and some World War One images.
Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday when there are services all over the country, the most well known one being held at the Cenotaph in London which is televised.
I wish you a peaceful day, Thanks for looking, Chris
