It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the times of war and the times of freedom. It was the times of defeating communism the times of losing lives. It was the times of saying goodbye and saying hello. It was the times of knowing where loved ones were or staying awake at night wondering when they would come home, if they would. It was the times of defending our freedom it was the times our freedom was put into jeopardy. It was the times we defeated the British it was the times like 9/11. It was the times of defeating Korea it was the times of losing to Vietnam. It was the times of guns it was the times of peace. It was the times of earning money it was the times of giving up your life. It was times of bravery and strength it was times of fright and being a coward.

We were told to re-do the famous poem by Charles Dickens. I chose to compare the good and bad points of war.
