100 Years Ago Today

It was a hundred years ago today that motions were set in place which would bring about one of the deadliest wars in history.
June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Fredinand and his wife, Sophie, were assassinated in Sarajevo. Their killer was part of a group called the Malada Bosna (Young Bosnia).
This action had a tremendous effect on political events of the day. Treaties formed before this time would become important, as countries moved in obligation of treaties to other countries. The end result would be a four year war which led to Europe in shambles, and laying the groundwork for some of the most brutal leaders to ever hold office to come to power.
An important lesson should be learned from this, you may never understand what chain of events you might trigger by doing something foolish. Sadly, I fear we have lost that lesson, and even the lessons to safeguard against savage leaders like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Many now try to glorify such past events, never realizing they are setting up a repeat of the past.
