Friday Fictioneers time already! The weeks sure do fly. Just so happens there will be lots of stories of war, heroes, Remembrance Day; as well there should. I was going to resist, but I could not. Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers weekly and to J.Hardy Carroll for providing us with this thought-provoking photo.

Today marks Remembrance Day or Veterans Day, depending on where you live.
All over social media are commemorations of loved ones who’ve participated in one war or another.
I feel so strange that there is not one member of my family, on either side, to my knowledge, who has served in the military and/or given up their life for my country.
Though I’ve graves to visit, none are for this type of hero.
Yet I wear the poppy. And I volunteer at my boys’ school where we celebrate veterans.
“Lest we forget.” Words repeated the world over, as we should.
