No need to jazz it up.
I know that it's cute to have Corduroy Day on the day with all the vertical lines in the date.
But maybe it's better to use today to remember warriors and wars past. That's what we set this day aside for.
If you (like me) never took on the duty, there's certainly nothing to keep you from appreciating the securities provided by those who have done so. If you are a pacifist, then now is the time to reflect on the horror of war, and be glad that it isn't coming to your home. There's a reason for that, you know.
I look forward to the day that we celebrate armistice, yet again.
Until our men and women come home --and even then-- remember.
