REMEMBRANCE DAY / POPPY DAY

Remembrance Day: 11 November

Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day owing to the tradition of the remembrance poppy) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states.

Remembrance Day has been observed since the end of the First World War to remember armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.

In most countries, Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of First World War hostilities. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. (“At the 11th hour” refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.) The First World War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919.

VETERANS DAY

Veterans Day: 11 November

Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honouring military veterans, that is, persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces (and were discharged under conditions other than dishonourable). It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

FOR A GOOD REASON

A Voice from Iran

“167th story”

Once upon a time;

a king had a loyal right-hand man. The right-hand man had a saying; “It was for a good reason.”

He used this saying on any matter or occasion.

One day the king and his right-hand man were exploring the mountains.

And suddenly, the king’s hand got stuck in a stony place. They tried very hard to release the king’s hand, but unfortunately, he lost one finger.

The right-hand man said: “It was probably for a good reason.”

The king was in pain and got very angry about the right-hand man’s stupid comment and ordered to put him in a dungeon.

One year passed, and the king went to the mountain for hunting. A tribe attacked him and took the king as a prisoner.

The tribe’s belief was to sacrifice a human once a year for their Gods.

But concerning their Gods, that person had…
