When i was little i always used to hear about the holocaust and the concentration camps. Well i thought that they pinnted your head to these bars and stood you on a metal plat form and then attach wires in to the metal on your head and forcing information you didnt want to hear into your brain until it blew up.

When I was in kindergarten the first Gulf War was going on. All I really remember is hearing about "some war" and knowing that at one point my father was in the military.

Well, hear comes show-and-tell one day and I forgot to get something so I do what any normal kid would do: make something up (I also did this in second grade and told everyone I had read the entire encyclopedia -- my parents had just bought a new encyclopedia set).

So I told everyone how my dad was in "the war" and how he would come home every night "rugged and tired," because you can come home every night from Iraq! Mteacher was very concerned for me and called my mom to express how deeply she felt that "that little girl's daddy is at war". Needless to say I wasn't allowed to have any play dates for quite some time!

When I was small
My father told me about his aunt
Who foretold the event of the Great War
(It was World War I)

She said that one night,
She saw soldiers marching across the
moon.
That story never failed to give me the shivers.

I used to believe that the "armory" was the "army" and the war was being fought there. I was afraid to walk on the street where the "armory" was located.

When I was about 9 or 10 years old I read a fiction novel about a little Jewish girl growing up in the US in the years after WW2. In the book, she would play act with her friends about the war, and specifically, about concentration camps. I had no idea what they were talking about it. But, I assumed that it was something that the author of the story had just made up, and had nothing to do with real events.

I was into wars and battles when I was a child, I used to believe that if I was a pilot in the war and captured in Germany that I could blag my way out of it and say I loved Germany, I thought they would give
me my own german plane, then I would fly back to England and be free.

I used to be convinced that the world was about to end in a nuclear war. I used to make my mum and dad kiss my hand every night before I went to bed so that I would still have their last kiss on me when I died.

During the Civil War, a group of artillery was called a battery. I read about this while looking in my sister's history book. She was in 5th grade, I was in 1st. Well, I belived that you could blow someone up if you threw a battery at someone hard enough.

When I was small, I believed that a war was when two teams (that for some reason looked like the swarves from Snow White) got together and played tug-o-war. They did this in the dirt with a chalked ring around the playing field. When I heard about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, and pictured him standing on the side lines cheering his team on.

When I was a little boy, my grandma went to Germany. She, of course, brought back some gifts and stuff. I liked them so much that I thought Germany was a cool country and it hasn't beed in any wars because it's so good. :)

I used to love studying the Civil War ( I still do ) since I was in 1st grade. Well, I told my friend about it. We both were in 2nd grade. Well, I told him that to win a battle, you had to take the enemies' flag, as they took the enemies' colors in the Civil War. Whenever we played war, we always "took the enemies' flag". I guess that's how capture the flag came to be.
