Yesterday this famous assassination of Austria's Archduke Ferdinand and his wife changed the modern world. This act touched off the growing tensions between the European world powers into a world war that devastated countries and killed/wounded millions of lives and reshaped the political landscape of Europe. Those events still reverberate today and are tied to the outbreak of the second world war.
It has been a 100 years since this event and for most, these days, the First World War does not even begin to be understood or remembered (at least here in the United States).
Take a moment and remember all of those who fight, died, were wounded and for all of those civilians who suffered during this devastating war.
