"This Armistice Day reminds us that though 61 years ago a war was brought to a halt, the work of reconciliation must continue," said former Congressman Dennis Kucinich. "There is no more appropriate site to convey that message than the Lincoln Memorial. President Lincoln moved mightily to heal the divisions of civil war and to unify America. History calls forth the healing spirit of Lincoln in every nation, so that the spirit of the world may ascend from the ashes of war."
He went on to lament a society that has people who can only express themselves violently.
