100 word challenge. Due 15th November 2013

Here in the UK and in other parts of the world we are commemorating those who lost their lives in war. Our remembrance day is 11th Nov and I know those of you in other parts of the world also have such events.

I also know that not all of you have an annual event like this so the prompt this week is:
“Remembering”

  1. As I was walking I just saw the army bow for the world before they go off to war. Its really sad I see people crying because some of there family members are going into the war and they do not want to lose them. Off they go on the plane. They arrive a soon as sunlight goes down all you can hear is bangbangbang. The vibration on the ground. As years has been past they have finally returned there wore 100 soldiers to start off now there is 30. As some people lost there family they have been looking up at the stars. This is a message for the soldiers- As the years have gone pass on the 11 of November we always have a minute silence to remember uses you are not just in heaven you are in a lovely hearts to.

  2. I awoke with sounds of gunfire in the trenches at Flanders Fields. I got up briskly and grabbed my rifle, put on my tin hat, and headed out to the trench. I raced over to the Sargeant and asked what I needed to do. He replied by yelling in my face “Get to your spot, Nipper”. I walked about 50 metres, jumped on the firing step. I saw a muddy, bare smoky battlefield. It smelt like gunpowder and blood. I felt a grubby hand grab my shirt and pull me back. I looked back, saw a soldier, a German soldier…

  3. Every night I stare out the window, remembering you. Every morning I stare at your bed, where you used to lay. Every afternoon I stare at the pictures on the wall, just for some memories. Every day I think about you, and what an impact you made on everyone around you. I count the days I haven’t spent with you. I count the weeks, months years, I haven’t been with you. I do all these things, so I’ll never forget you. Because once I forget you, all the things that make me happy will leave. I’ll never stop, remembering you.

  4. Every day when I walk by a field with poppies, I remember when the soldiers fought in the war. I try to count all the poppies but there are too many to count, just as there were too many soldiers that died in the war. It makes me feel sad because they died to make a better place for us to live in. They were brave to risk their lives every day to save everybody. When I look at the poppies it reminds me how much blood the soldiers lost when they were fighting in the war. We stop and remember them on the 11th of November.

  5. I was a young man when I got told I was going to fight for Australia in the war. I trained and trained. I went to bed but then I was woken by bang. They were early, so we weren’t prepared. I went and fought and didn’t care if I was going to get killed or not. I was fighting for my country to protect them. The war was finally over and Australia was safe. As I walked through the poppy’s I start to think of all my friends who died risking their lives. I start to cry.

  6. Every day I walk in the poppy field were you died , remembering you, i look on the chair you sat in everyday with me in you lap , i think about the happy times with me and you, the time when you married me kissed me loved me, but you mosly loved the baby we had in your arms you kissed it and toke care of it i count how long you have been away days months years, but when i got that messesge from you i was happy that you were alive still thinking about me, i wished and prayed to god for you to come home and see hoe big our little bot and little girl. But that day you came home and smiled and never stoped being with me was that most wonderful time i will rembmer the war that happend, never leave again!

  7. I wake up in destress thinking about the danger we are in by staying here in Flanders Fields. I hear blood curdling screams, gunshots and more people dying. I see the flying air craft the smoke and the dirt flying around air. I hear foot steps coming up the steps, knocking at the door. I answer the door the German solider comes and order us away he drags my family and I away into a truck and since then live hasn’t been the same. Now today all I have is my memories, photo, whats left of my family and Remembrance Day.

  8. I’m about to get up ready for my usual weekend Saturday. I’m normally in a nice happy mood, But not today. Today is the day our family has our own Remembrance Day. I know it sounds weird but Mum finds it more respectful when the whole family is spare which we understand because I’m always at school. So as usual we stand at 11:00 am and pm for some reason remembering the brave solders that fought for us in the first and second World War. But I find it better doing it on the actual remembrance day. I think it is just plain disrespectful.

  9. I was walking with my dog and mum, when all a sudden everything and everyone just stops I heard this voice from the speakers in the school saying everyone it is the 11/11/2013 so I want you to stop for a minute and think about all those brave soldiers and remembering everything that they done for us. They put their lives out there for us so let’s start. So we stop and think about them and I look around and people are crying. Then everyone starts going again.

  10. Bang Bang gunfire all around me. I run for my life for a foxhole. Suddenly I hear my name called. I looked and looked for who was calling my name. It was my friend. His legs had been blown off. I ran to him and said “It will be alright, don’t worry”, and then he took his last breath. Now it is 2003 and I go back to the same place where my friend last stood. Now the whole field is full poppies. The red from the poppies reminds me of the blood that we all shed for freedom.

  11. I heard gunshots all around me. .There were soldiers and guns everywhere. They were shooting all around me and I saw my friends dying in front of me. I got shot in the leg and it really hurt. I called for the medics and they took me to the medical tent, where they attended to my wounds. I got send home for 2 years to heal properly, then I came back because they slowly run out of people. when I got back I put poppies near a status to remember my friends that died that day

  13. We remember the people that lost there life’s in world war 1 & 2. At 11 o’clock we have a minute of silence to remember the soldier’s.

  14. As I go to reload I get shot in the leg and I fall to the ground and Simpson and his donkey come and get me and takes me to the nurse she pulls the bullet out and I rush back out to the battlefield and all I can hear are gun shots and people saying cover me I’m re-loading my captain gets shot I rush to help him but it was too late he is dead who is going to take his place and be our new captain I will said a deep voice but your only a rookie.
