This, I Believe

I believe in world peace and the Army. I think

peace would make the world a better place to live. First of all, we wouldn’t have to worry about getting kidnapped by other countries on our way to school. Second, it would be nice to know that we’re not getting on a plane that might get hijacked.

I think wars are violent and senseless. I believe all wars should be stopped. To me world peace means no one fighting about religions or government decisions. In world peace people would treat everyone else equally.

On the other hand, we should support our troops in the wars. I think joining the Army is very honorable. They fight for freedom and die for us. We should appreciate this liberty, and try to treat other people as we would like to be treated.

I believe in ending wars. –
