War’s Silent Hostage is a very moving piece by Dawn K. Each sentence begins with “ I want to talk about” and then tell about how a soldier in the war feels or or what he or she does. The most moving sentence in it to me is “ I want to talk about that even a brave soldiers is scared.This piece explains how soldiers feel at war, wondering if they’ll ever see their families or friends ever again.I can’t imagine the stress and sadness I would feel in that position.I wanted to join the army but I don’t think I’d have the courage to do it now. I respect our soldiers who are putting their lives in danger for our safety and the people living in that country’s safety. I pray that mothers and fathers will see thier children again and that brothers and sisters will be able to spend time together and reminice about their lives. Thank you for changing my way of thinking towards the people in the war how how it changes them, Dawn.
