  1. Britain Dims the Lights for World War I Anniversary

    Lights across Britain went off last night to commemorate the outbreak of World War I, honoring a 100-year-old prophecy by the UK’s Foreign Minister Edward Grey: “The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” From the Houses of Parliament to soccer stadiums nationwide, Brits observed an hour-long blackout. The dark tribute shined a light on the 700,000 British soldiers lost in the ”war to end all wars.”
