During World War I, there was a soldiers’ truce over Christmas, and opposing armies got out of their trenches to share food and wine. Times were civilized, acknowledging one another’s humanity in the face of atrocity, meaning having to kill another human you might call friend in times of peace.
Below is a beautiful singing vignette highlighting this unusual break in war time during WWI. This video was sent to me today, Remembrance Day by my 95 year old mother in Canada. She has experienced more than me, and teaches me daily about aging deliciously. Thank you Mom.
