I hope this century will bring more peace to this region and to the world in general.

World War 1 was a sad and tragic event that should have never happened.__________________
The assassination, unfortunately, ignited a spark that hit gasoline.
If you read the history, France and England were as much to blame
as Germany for starting the conflict.
The treaty at the end of the war set the next slow burning spark
for the next world war.
