Written by Takamori High School Students
I hadn’t written such a long English message before, but I think I can write better English essay on peace than I had expected. I had a reply personally because I presented my peace message early. I’m very happy to have a reply from Korean ALT and students. They wrote about mines in Cambodia more concretely than I had written, so I could learn more about this problem.
I also read a message written by a senior student in our school. She wrote about Auschwitz concentration camps. To tell the truth, I had studied this problem for a graduation thesis when I was a junior high school student. It’s very cruel and we shouldn’t repeat such terrible things. She said, “We should know about war properly,” and, “Everyone has to have a kind heart and cooperate with each other.” I think so too because all the leaders of the wars have an egotistical mind. The most important thing is to have a kind heart. I think the most impressive messages from foreign countries are the poems from India. I read English poems for the first time, and I was moved by the poems very much. Moreover, Sreejoni used rhymes. I didn’t know English poems also have rhymes like Japanese and Chinese poems do. Sreejoni’s messages are very poetic. I think most people were impressed by his messages. I really hope that people all over the world will live comfortably without fear of war or mines someday.
