What if people around the world devoted the month of November to #NOwar?

In the US and many other countries, November 11 is remembered as the date of the armistice ending WWI.

What if people everywhere re-claimed that date for its original meaning – the determination to “end all wars”?

“In Flanders Fields” – “If ye break faith with us who die / We shall not sleep . . . “

How will you be  saying #NOwar in November?

  1. Well,you could call this a prelude to this November of “end all wars”,as a protest rally will be held on October 31 at Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine. A warship is getting ‘christened’, and I will be there. I am thinking of making a sign that reads “War is not Christ’s Way”..

  2. You do realize, I hope, that the Flander’s Field poem actually calls us to war, when necessary to defend the right. Funny to see it on an anti-war site. Let us continue to hold up the torch and fight for the right! As Abe Lincoln said “to sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”
