I have met a couple of six-year-olds who were apparently quite excited to meet me - before they actually met me. And when they actually met me they ran behind their parents’ legs and cowered for shelter. It was as if they thought I was going to cast a spell on them or something.
During the First World War (1914-1918), soldiers ordered a cease-fire truce during Christmas time, so soldiers would not have to fight on the holiday. Soldiers from opposing forces exchanged cigarettes and other goods, and even engaged in activities like football, as depicted in this photo from 1915. This Christmas Truce is now seen as a symbolic moment of peace amidst one of the bloodiest battles ever fought in history.
this is one of my favorite stories
this is what breaks my heart when it comes to war because you realise that they’re not some superhero sent to fight - they’re just like you and me. why should countries’ differences be settled through the death of human lives????

BBC - BLOCK B = 0↳ "BBC, you believed in us until the end even though we messed up, or there was no news about us and you really didn’t know where we were or what we were doing. You cheered for us, and became our strength, and really became our light like in our song title. You waited for us until we could see the light like this today. Thank you so very much, and I’ll never forget you as long as I live, until I die. No, even when I die I’ll remember you. Let’s really be together until the end." - Pyo Jihoon
