A hundred years ago

One hundred years ago today, Serbian yugoslav Nationalist Gavrilo Princip shot and killed archduke Ferdinand and his wife in the city of Sarajevo. This was the match to the powder keg that was Europe of the time, setting in motion a chain of events that lead to the declaration of war, and created one of the greatest darkneses the world has ever seen. We live still under the long shadow of those shots.
