... to end all wars.

It wasn't, although the hope was there. Given the fact that in Canada we have only six WWI veterans left alive, it makes me wonder how much more quickly we'll forget the lessons of that first world war now?

Although WWII casts a longer shadow over my generation, the first war was in its time considered to be so horrific that no one would ever choose to war again.

I wonder what, if the dead of that war could see the world today, what they would have to say to their children?
