the worlds greatest question

if you were fighting on the front lines and you could choose your death, how would you die? and why?

i would get shot into an arm. only to run out of the trench toward enemy lines to be shot down multiple times. then with my last ounce of strength i would throw a gas grenade and a grenade into a hole and jump into the hole to ensure a long and painful death.

well painlessly of course!! maybe get shot. cuz i kno i wouldnt want to get blown up by a bomb or anything...

BritB said...

wait what!! jake that dont make no sense!! haha but interesting way of wanting to die...

Brooke Ewert said...

i would choose to get shot with a machiene gun in the head because it probably would be quick and painless.

I would want to die by a bullet to the head because it would be quick and less painful.


mary said...

thats obvious!
shot in the head or heart!
and then you wouldn't have to go through a lot of pain!

ttyson said...

i would want to get blown by a bomb because it would be very quick and i wouldnt feel a thing.

Lauren E. said...

i agree with [most] other people : get shot in the back of the head. quick and painless [i think, ive never gotten shot in the back of the head, so i wouldnt know].

Eric said...

I would want a quick death. I would want to get shot in the heart so I wouldn't sufer to much.


Emily said...

I would take a bullet to the head, because it is fast and painless...well most of the time

Quincy said...

I would want to get killed the fastest way possible maybe by a bomb taking several people with me on the way so I would die with honor. Though honestly I would rather live and be a deserter and a coward. Only if I didn't get caught by the deserter police or whatever they are called.

What the heck jake!!! Why would u want to die like 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
