I would rather fight in air because then i wouldn't have to face the front lines. Also, I think flying would be a more fun experience. But it is a long fall...

I would rather fly a plane because you probably won't have as much chance of dying.

I think it would depend on the job I was given on the ground. If my job was to shoot down the planes I would rather fight on land, but if I had to fight in the trenches I would rather fly a plain.

I would rather fight in the air because it would be FUNNER :) and I wouldn't have to worry about poisonous gases (those are so gross! I wouldn't ever want to literally cough up my lungs!)

I would so rather fly a plane because i think it would be really scary to have to go and see the person dying that u shot or stabbed or however u killed them.

History Quotes

We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and thus they determine future events.
-Gerda Lerner

History, we can confidently assert, is useful in the sense that art and music, poetry and flowers, religion and philosophy are useful. Without it -- as with these -- life would be poorer and meaner; without it we should be denied some of those intellectual and moral experiences which give meaning and richness to life. Surely it is no accident that the study of history has been the solace of many of the noblest minds of every generation.
-Henry Steele Commager

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
-Robert F. Kennedy
