Waltham - 100 years ago today World War I began in Europe. The "war to end all wars" they said.

By its end on November 11, 1918 what we know was ended were the lives of nine million people including these brave souls from a tiny hamlet an ocean away called Waltham.

These 56 boys from Waltham left home for the last time never to see another ball game or to open a Christmas gift or to blow out birthday candles or to see their children grow.

Fifty-six.

A staggering number really when you realize that our nation was at war for so short a time. Fifty-six kids from the most recent high school classes gone.

They met the tides of history and of circumstance with courage, devotion and selfless determination.

Remember them and pray for them.

Pray also for their beloved families who paid a terrible price in handing their souls over to eternity and pray that the cause for which they gave their lives will never be forsaken.

May their memories be eternal.
