Krista's awesome question [answer me!]

If you were fighting in the trenches, what do you think the worst part would be?


mason said...

the worst part would be getting shot cuz that really could hurt. and you could die.

Laura said...

Obviously being shot would be the number one thing. But otherwise, for me at least it would be having all of the rats and just hearing constant firing of machine guns and bombs. (Also, I would probably faint if I saw someone get shot and die!)

i think the rotting feet...eww..cuz if u dont have good leather boots ur feet could rot or something...and from all the blood lost in the trenches and u could get a lot of dieseas. and also the rats...since they were the size of cats...that would be gross tooo!!

Brooke Ewert said...

the worst part of the trenches would be the big rats because they ate at the rotting bodies. Soon you would be there too.

Anonymous said...

The worst part of being in the trenches would be the fact that you always had a chance to die because you never know when someone could pop up and shoot at you or throw a bomb at you.

the worst part would be knowing as soon as you got out of it you would be shot and killed

Eric said...

The worst part would be all the bullets flying and the gas bombs. I would also hate walk around with cat sized rats.


Quincy said...

I would hate everything about it. The rats, the bombs, the guns, the trench foot. I would not want to have to suffer through any of that.

Brandon T. said...

I think the worst part would be listening to the loud gunfire day after day. I would rather go over the trench wall and die than listen to that

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
