Remembrance Day by Matthew Fisher
There are many signs, stories and words I think about on Remembrance Day, like poppies and flags and words like veterans, peace and bravery. I have heard stories too.
People used flags in the war. There was a picture of a man holding a flag and soldiers around him. Also, poppies are a sign of the people who died. We wear a poppy to remember the ones who died.
The veterans are people who have lived through the war. The veterans have a ceremony and they tell about the war. They do not want us to forget the ones who died.
Many people could help in the war by helping soldiers who were sick. Little kids collected things like bottles and metal and women helped to keep factories open.
During the war brave people fought to keep our country safe. There was a man who flew over an enemy ship and dropped bombs but, as he left, one of the bombs killed him. He was brave.
Peace is important because now we can go where we want and we can say what we want. We can talk about God.
These are the things I think about on Remembrance Day.
