Politically Incorrect! You are very correct but that is why we should never forget; to make sure it never happens again. This is the first year that there is no one left who can truly remember and so we have a responsibility to make sure we always remember. It is well said that if one does not know history we are apt to repeat it.

Birth of a Nation??? Let's get this straight: World War I was not about fighting for freedom. It was a bloody war of empires spurred on by the greed of industrialists and bankers made possible through nationalistic chauvinism on both sides. We came very close to allying with the Germans against the French. Newfoundland's war debt to Britain, as well as the many lost lives of Newfoundlanders cost the economy so much as to make an independent Newfoundland unviable. For us it was the death of a nation. Jingoistic rhetoric aside, this war was a needless slaughter 35 million people. There was nothing glorious about it.
