In the book, Night by Elie Wiesel, Wiesel explains how he will never forget the suffering he went through.
¨Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed...Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God himself. Never¨ (34).
This quote displays how war has become edged into his mind, his soul, and he will never forget, even until the day he dies. Everyone has some part of war in his/her mind, whether they experienced war itself or not, the knowledge is there. War never displays itself as a good idea. War exists within the human soul, regardless of ethnicity, gender, etc. and is experienced by everyone in some way. If people find the war that is at the core of themselves and think about it before conflict starts, war could slowly minimize.
Many Different wars left unforgettable moments into the heads of many involved. History books reveal how the Revolutionary War has made many devastated. The Civil War was the first war to have photos released of the actions going on, this allowed many to visualize the pain of all the soldiers. World War I and World War II have different articles and movies that show different experiences of all soldiers and families involved. In addition, the Vietnam war has speeches where anger and pain was expressed through the spoken words. All of these prove how war starts to affect a person. These wars are constantly talked about, they have so many different views. If people start remembering the past experiences, war could be viewed a different way.
During 1750-1776, America wanted to fight for freedom from Great Britain. Both sides believed that they were right, Britain believed the way America was being treated was fair as America believed the opposite. In retaliation, America decided to go to war for freedom, and slowly succeeded. ¨King George's failed to establish either Britain or France as the dominant power in North America, and each side soon began preparations for another war" (Boyer 125). No matter how much fighting went on, both sides believed quitting was not an option. Just as the Enduring Visions claims, even after Britain declared multiple acts towards America, they still got the willpower to fight back for what is right. Even if the conflict was not as big as fighting for freedom, war is in everyone's hearts. Some may choose to do whatever is necessary to win the war that they are involved in. Arguments towards one another is just a smaller form of war. Though, maybe the involvement is not as major as countries fighting each other, it is still considered as war. People will always be involved in war, whether in their minds, their families, their friends, or their countries, war is war, no matter how big or small.
