The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.

On Vashon Island, Washington there is a bike that has grown into a tree. As the story goes, a boy left his bike chained there when he went off to war in 1914. He never returned. The bike remained where he had left it, either forgotten by time or as a tribute to his memory.
