The war was offical- it was happening. I was scared. I went to bed while hearing the deafening screams echoing through the cold war.
I woke up the next day to hear that my dad had to go to the army to defend Ireland. I was so mad at my dad but I did know that he had no choice to go or to stay.
But there he goes far into the distance all the way to fight for freedom. I told my mom that one day I’ll be out there just like my dad.
But she just laughed.
