If anniversaries mean something, 2014 is a bonanza. The most momentous anniversary in 2014 is, of course, the 100th anniversary of the start of The Great War, subsequently called World War I.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, the 40th anniversary of the defeat of the US in Vietnam, the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.
Alas, some will leave these somber anniversaries alone and focus on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ coming to America. Didn’t the group sing “When I’m 64?” Seems they also had a thing for numbers.
