World War Commemoration

Last week we had an assembly to commemorate World War One.  The students wrote about the assembly and did some research about the World Wars.  Here is Lorenzo's piece.

We usually don’t have assembly on Mondays but today is a special. On August the 4th 1914, that was when the World War 1 started, 100 years ago. The world war 1 has many people and countries in war. To remember the people that died in the war we should say lest we forget.
20 billion people were wounded (means that they were injured or hurt) and there were 16 million deaths, 10 million military people died and 7 million civilians.
9 of every 10 soldiers that survived the World War 1 were injured but they came back home to their loved ones.
