A hundred years ago (07/28/1914), The First World War, also known as The Great War, had begun. This is not a day of joy, this is a day of remembrance, a day to place respect to everyone who died on the trenches, fields or whatever place the War took place. Over 20 million people died in the conflict, not only soldiers but civilians too and the amount of dead animals (most horses) was over a million too. The War destroyed the whole European continent and it took years to rise again, and when it happened to be a rebuilt continent, another “Great War” started.
