World War I - 2014 marks the centenary of the First World War.
 
The first world war centenary is year to honour the dead, not glorify the war, says War Horse author Michael Morpurgo:

"There should be no flag waving, unless it be the lowering of the flags of all the nations who lost their sons, unless it be to celebrate the peace we now share together, unless it be to reaffirm again our determination to guard our freedom, but as far as humanly possible to do it in peace. And when we sing the anthems, let them be anthems of peace and reconciliation.
...Come each November over the next four years, let the red poppy and the white poppy be worn together to honour those who died, to keep our faith with them, to make of this world a place where freedom and peace can reign together."
(Michael Morpurgo)
You can read more about the alternative World War 1 commemorations at www.noglory.org - and read an open letter, signed by writers, actors, musicians, teachers and campaigners - that calls for the anniversary to be used to promote peace and international co-operation.
