Why Is the Veterans Day So Important to the Americans and the World?

November 11, 2011  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Social    Views: 676

Veterans Day is observed all over the US. This year's Veterans Day on November 11 has a special meaning as it is celebrated on an auspicious day of number 11. Leaving aside all the numerological aspects let us make it more meaningful to the world at large.


Veterans Day is observed on November 11 every year, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. When other national holidays are observed on different dates, this Veterans Day is observed only on November 11, because of the significance of this date in American history.

Significance of this great day

This day has great significance not only to the US but also to the whole world because it is this day that the World War I was officially ended. The whole world has a part and responsibility to observe this day as a day of peace because it was the end of a great attempt on the very existence of human life.

Declaration to end World War

It was on this day that the United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution later on June 4, 1926, with these words, "Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed." It was the first ever human attempt to end all World Wars in future. It was actually a call to the whole world to come united to end all attempts of wars that can annihilate human life.

Although World War I, known as "The Great War" officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, it was already over on November 11, 1918, when an armistice between the Allied Nations and Germany came into effect from eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. That is the reason for choosing this date and time for Veterans Day observation.

November 11 is an obligation to the whole world

This day November 11 is a day of commemoration with thanksgiving and prayer in order to perpetuate all attempts of peace. This day is an occasion of promoting good will and mutual understanding between nations throughout the world. This day should be obligatory to the whole world not only because it brought the World War I to an end, but because it brought to light the good will of of the whole world in fighting against everything that is against world peace. In my opinion, it is a fitting day to commemorate all veterans, all veteran organizations, and all the peace promoting organizations of the world who should join their hands for the common purpose of peace.

While the US is observing this great day, it may be fitting for the nations of the whole world to think of their own efforts to promote world peace.
