Anzac Memorial Writing- World War 1

Every year on the 25th of April, there has always been an event called Anzac day. This year on Anzac day will be a very special day because it has been the 100th year since the first world war. This event is an honour to all the soldiers that fought for our lands and country. At the front of the Museum in Auckland there is a large stone that has names of soldiers and that stone is called a Cenotaph.

As I sat down near our little Anzac memorial, I pondered about all the soldiers who fought in the war and also thought about how it would of have felt to be fighting in the war. It must've been so hard and exhausting for the soldiers that were there. Many of them had sacrificed their lives for us and we shall appreciate them all. ‘Lest We Forget’

The only thing I could picture in my mind was a lot of gore, people dieing and guns firing throughout the battlefield. It is really hard to hear that one of your family members had past away during the war especially if they meant a lot to you. Many people were devastated as soon as they heard their sons or dads had passed on and they have a really peaceful home.
