    The first reason why sixth graders should learn about the Holocaust is because I have been hearing about this war from my grandma for a very long time and my grandma must have thought I was mature enough to hear about. All sixth graders are either 11, 12, or sometimes 13. We have already seen PG13 movies before which a little kid would call "scary." We have also heard things that have prepared us for something so terrible as this, but if we have never seen a leaf ever fall from a tree before, we will not be prepared for this. Also, if we start learning about it when we're 20, people might be talking about it when we're 19 and we will have no idea what they're talking about. If you are taught about the Holocaust when you are 5 though, you will always remember the horrible nightmares you had when you were 5. It is important to learn about the Holocaust when you are mature enough to.

    The third and final reason why sixth graders should learn about the Holocaust is to learn about Adolf Hitler's crime against humanity. "The Holocaust was the most evil crime ever committed," was a quote by Stephen Ambrose. I agree with him. Adolf Hitler had failed at mostly everything in his lifetime and finally, he found people he could blame them on. Hitler was said to have a very strong voice so when people heard him speak, they didn't think about what he was really saying. He made the death of six million innocent people sound like a good thing. That's why people volunteered to be Nazis. If there are any more Nazis living today, they should regret being the people they chose to be. They chose to kill, they chose to torture, but worst of all, they chose to support "the most evil crime ever committed."

    I usually build walls like this. I only do so because i feel emotionally vulnerable when my dad, whom I love so much, is never home, and when he is he has to leave. Though sometimes they can protect you, the narrator thinks walls are not a good idea. We know this because he says "Walls meant to be fortresses, are prisons after all."
    Dally has built walls by hardening himself. He hides his feelings from the world. One reason is because he hates his life. The walls came up in jail and only Johnny, "his little brother," could ever break them down.
    My opinion about walls is they are a necessary part of life. Everyone uses walls. There are times we need to build walls. Most of the time during emotional times. So I do think walls are necessary.

    to protect himselfhimself, but even if they keep him safe, they are walls he cannot climb. One interesting line in the poem was "Walls that stare or smile or look away." The line describes his metaphorical walls that shield his emotion. Another interesting line was "Walls meant to be fortresses, are prisons after all." This means his emotiona; protection comes at the cost of fun, love, and other things that require emotion to do or have.
