Today, November 11, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of the end of The First World War.
The First World War–also known as World War I and the Great War–was a global war that originated in Europe and lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918.
It’s estimated that nine million combatants and seven million civilians died as a direct result of the war.
Please take a little time today to pause and reflect.
