"The Evils of War," Sayid Abdin, ninth grade, Townsend Harris High School

There are Civil Wars, World Wars, and Cold Wars.
All fought in order to obtain peace.
However, war is violence and violence is the opposite of peace.
If there is peace,
Then nobody will have any anger to release.
Civilians are killed and homes are wrecked.
Is it worth terrorizing families?
Wars are fought for what cause?
Money, power, and oil aren’t good reasons to fight in a war.
If you can’t afford gas, then don’t drive a car.
Humans are fighting amongst each other everywhere.
What will happen if extraterrestrials come from outside our atmosphere?
Peace is the solution to all the world’s problems.
Why can’t everyone just get along?
Nuclear weapons destroy everything.
And one day they will destroy everyone.
