Everyone has an opinion. They discuss the pros and cons of each situation. Someone relates war allies to the alliance he feels toward his buddy on the playground. This puts a new spin on the idea of helping in another country. War is not just a foreign concept anymore.
As the discussion continues, one of the first- year students raises her hand. She patiently waits her turn to speak. “Why can’t they just make peace instead?”
A hush falls over the room. Teachers and students nod in agreement. Well said, my friend.
