I loved it, made me cry, anything like this does. My dad was in the army, and my grandad and his dad etc., and so are two of my big brothers. The other one is in the R.A.A.F (Royal Australian Air Force). I know I can lose them at any moment, and I'm growing up with my brothers-and still sometimes my dad-all the way on the other side of Australia, so I know what it's like. It's great that other kids our age (I'm also 14) know about the wars. Quite frankly, I'm disgusted by the lack of knowledge and respect my schoolmates have for our diggers.
Aaaaaaaaaanyways, I loved it, you write well, and sorry for my little rant :P.
I`m gald you like it. I too am disgusted about peoles lack of knowledge. At my old school got in trouble because I hada go at one of the kids `cause they said they didin`t give a damn about the 2nd world war.
I really hope that everyone you know stays safe.
