The media can be sneaky. Some commercials may try to trick you into the idea that November 11th means going to your nearest mall at the earliest hour you can stand and plowing nearby shoppers with your car so that you can be the first to get that exclusive item 25% off, even though you can’t afford it and you won’t use it after today. But, thankfully, if that does not sound appealing, there is an alternative way to spend the day. Even if you do not do it precisely at 11:00 AM, as was done in the past, take a few minutes to remember those who gambled their lives to ensure your freedom. If you are a veteran yourself, thank you.
