A Century of War

...How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
~ Bob Dylan 
Trench Troops - World War I

Today marks the 100-year anniversary of the start of World War I.

Especially in view of current events in the Middle East and Ukraine, this day's dark centennial reminds us of the dominance of human nature's enduring evil streak. Hundreds of millions of people have died in global conflicts during the past century.

Will there ever be an end to the strife? All these years later, the answer is still lost in the wind.
