During the First World War (1914-1918), soldiers ordered a cease-fire truce during Christmas time, so soldiers would not have to fight on the holiday. Soldiers from opposing forces exchanged cigarettes and other goods, and even engaged in activities like football, as depicted in this photo from 1915. This Christmas Truce is now seen as a symbolic moment of peace amidst one of the bloodiest battles ever fought in history.
this is one of my favorite stories
this is what breaks my heart when it comes to war because you realise that they’re not some superhero sent to fight - they’re just like you and me. why should countries’ differences be settled through the death of human lives????

25: belated birthday/ celebratory brunch + shg + jap buffet to welcome the sister back hooooome!
watching the kids play basketball today + listening to my kid’s stories of her home and life left me with a very odd feeling- something about a child’s innocence/ purity that reminded me of why i loved serving in cch so much in the past and why i will always prefer kids to adults.

"Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times? As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar."
