Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The single gunshot that set the world ablaze
I thought about blogging the post at the exact time it happened, but I am not even sure we know of the exact time. Anyway, today is/was a very special anniversary, as a friend of Facebook reminded me by posting this article on his Wall: the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The gunshot that literally started World War 1, that set the whole world on fire. Of course there were a lot of tensions and factors that truly lead to the war, but this was nevertheless the spark that started it all. And I find it very ironic.
