2014 - A new year and one that has at least two notable events; one will be celebrated and the other, commemorated. In July 1914 the First World War began; The Great War shattered the lives and dreams of millions of people. An horrendous war that swallowed young men like fodder and saw the use of chemical weapons and aerial bombings that contributed to the deaths of more than 16 million people, both military and civilian. It did not end "by Christmas" as many leaders at first believed and was considered "the end of the age of innocence." This year many countries will be commemorating the sacrifices made in order to "make the world safe for democracy." And democracy is what South Africans will be celebrating this year.
