11 / 11 / 11

11/11/11.  Yes, this is what most folks are considering as they think about today.

In fact, many folks are purposely getting married, having babies, starting projects, and doing myriads of other things on this 'unusual' date, 11/11/11.

But, did you know that, in addition to all the 'hype' surrounding this rare set of numbers, they comprise what is known as a palindrome.


What is a palindrome?

Well, according to the dictionary it is a "noun. A word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward."

"madam, nurses run" and, of course, the date of today 11/11/11 are all palindromes.

But, as interesting and 'educational' as that might be, there is something more important about today.

What is it?

Veteran's day, also known as Armistice Day, is a very special and important day and your flag should be flying.
