Have you ever heard the saying, “We Kill People Who Kill People to Show that Killing people is wrong”? I know it’s old, but this I believe. In every war people are fighting and dying and in the end most people don’t even remember what they were fighting about. Take the war going on right now between the Palistinians and the Israelies, they are fighting over terrorism. The Israelies are killing the Palistinians for being terrorists, but by killing the Palistinians, the Israelies are really being terrorists. This goes perfect with my saying, ” We kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong.” One side is killing people for doing something or another but really when that side is killing people they are doing what they are killing people for. I believe that war is just a argument that is done by violence. Nobody in my view is ever going to win until everyone is dead, and by that point it will have been so long that they won’t even feel the glowing feeling that comes with victory. I don’t believe that violence that takes so many people’s loved ones away could ever make anyone feel like a winner. But what do I know, I’m only 11. I haven’t been to war, nobody I know has ever died in a war. But I am sure that what I believe must have a meaning to those familys out there who loved someone and will never get to see them again due to violence. I hope my essay will touch these people and make them feel a little bit better.
