100 years ago today, June 28, 1914:

100 years ago today the shot was sounded which was heard around the world.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand was killed in Sarajevo. This was the beginning of WWI.
It affected my whole family on both sides.
The repercussions have been felt through the past century.
Here is an interesting link to what Franz Ferdinand thought of Vancouver when he visited it at the age of 29.
