Kurt Vonnegut | On Veteran's Day

"It was during that minute in 1918, that millions upon millions of human beings stopped butchering one another. Armistice Day has become Veterans' Day. Armistice Day was sacred. Veterans' Day is not.
So I will throw Veterans' Day over my shoulder. Armistice Day I will keep. I don't want to throw away any sacred things.
What else is sacred? Oh, Romeo and Juliet, for instance.
And all music is."
Kurt Vonnegut, The Breakfast of Champions
