For Remembrance Day, we had an assembly at our school to show our support for all of those soldiers who fought in the war and especially those who didn't return home to their families. We had a moment of silence and wore poppies to symbolize those brave soldiers who fought in World War 1 to protect our country so we could be free.
I wonder what would have happened if those soldiers didn't fight for us? What would have happened to our country?
I understand why there was war but I don't like the idea of fighting. My hope is that someday everyone will live in peace and there won't be any need for war, and that no one will try taking over another country. My hope is that people will solve disagreements with words, not weapons. Let's live in peace.
