Civil War--100 Words
In the 1860s, our nation suffered a civil war. Ironic name, don’t you think? Not much civil about southerners and northerners killing each other. Cousins fighting cousins. Brothers on opposite sides of the war.
Come to think of it, are wars ever civil? No.
Yet, citizens in our nation took up weapons and killed other citizens.
Could we get to that point again?
I think as I drive. The other day I noticed the people around me. Could one of them kill me? Could I kill them? All because we disagreed?
Don’t say it couldn’t happen here. It did once.
