\u201cThe Great War,\u201d it was called, \u201cthe war to end all war.\u201d World War I didn\u2019t end war. And it wasn\u2019t great \u2014 just large. Wars may be for a great cause, or achieve good ends. World War I launched the Atlantic alliance of American and European democracies that guards freedom to this day. Events and celebrations remember the devotion to duty, country and comrades of those called to battle. But wars are still blood and horror. Wars farther in the past seem easier to gaze upon, even celebrate. This year Ridgefield is honoring the 100th anniversary of World War I\u2019s end in 1918. Events and programs coming up include document digitization day Sunday, June 10, where archivists and historians will take family stories and keepsakes and enter them in the state\u2019s digital archive. Flag Day, June 14, the story of the Battle of Belleau Wood will be told. And Sunday, June 17, the Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center is hosting a World War I family day, with a broad range of activities both educational to entertaining for adults and kids. Don\u2019t miss it \u2014 mowing the lawn, or watching some game. Amid war\u2019s blood and death are honor, courage and sacrifice deserving of remembrance.
