    An Act of Rememberance in the United Kingdom

    Today, August 4th 2014, marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war between the United Kingdom (and the British Empire) and the nations of Europe that would lead to World War I. As an act of remembrance people across the UK are being asked to turn off their house lights and place a candle in their window and at 11.00pm BST (2200 GMT / 0000 CET) extinguish it to reflect the words of the English Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs who said at the time "Tonight,, the lights go out across Europe, it will be a long time before we see them again!". The paintings and poems are my grandmother's own work and was done especially for this anniversary year.
