Their aim was put an end to the atrocious war. Every member of Darelius shared one thing in common. They all despised those in power from the Seven Great Nations. This hatred of the Seven Major Powers of the world was one that was deeply rooted into their bones. It was a hatred that would not subside even with the passage of thousands of years! Why? Some countries have already disappeared and many were on the verge of being wiped from the face of the earth. Several islands, along with their many inhabitants, have long since sunken to the bottom of the sea, never to be seen again. Many died without even knowing how they died. The ones who started this cruel bloody war made life a living hell. They needed to be stopped. No, they needed to die! Mercy to one’s enemy is cruelty to one’s self and family, they had to die!

There are growing numbers in the Bloodcults, performing their brutal rituals, showing the sharp teeth of their savagery. Having to hide is becoming more of a chore than a once a week scare, out of sight, out of mind. The fires still burn in the distance, slowly consuming the world, turning it to ash.
The war was really impacted and made more deadly by the creation of new weapons that killed quicker and more efficiently.
Going into the fall 2014 semester, my family was not in a good place financially, and I was not mentally. Our income had been reduced, meaning I had to step up to help my family. This caused my already weakened mental state to become even more strained and took a toll on me physically. I was not able to concentrate on anything at school, work, and home, it was almost in a blur.

Going into the fall 2016 semester, I found the perfect balance between studying, work, and home life. In the end I exceeded all the expectations I had set for myself in every
There was war and famine all around us. Each horrendous battle was a nightmare in its most powerful form. I could never forget those nightmares.The suffering howls of injured men who died as pawns in a game of warlords, dark crimson blood seeping through their uniform and into the brass-covered Earth.The battlefield was dust and dirt, all baked under an uncompromising sun and an even uncompromising army of ruthless soldiers waiting for the taste of their new kill.
During this period of time, 10,000 people were murdered each day and more than 6 men, women and children were murdered every minute every day. This kept going for about 3 months.
The world has evolved from wars and violence. The wars have created new countries and allowed the dominance of new religions. Warnings of the risks of violence cover the world, in school, television, and stories. The four stories “The Pit and the Pendulum” by Edgar Allen Poe, “The Interlopers” by Saki, “By the Waters of Babylon” by Stephen Benét, and “There Will Come Soft Rains” all compare the dangers of violence, however the pairing of the first two detail the perspective during the violent acts, and the pairing of the final two describe the consequences the wars leave for years afterward.
WWII was the bloodiest war in history. With over eighty million deaths, more than 50 of which were civilians. Some of these deaths occurred when armies stormed towns, but many of those deaths came from the atomic bombing in Japan. The atomic bomb is the most powerful weapon humans ever created. When it was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the effects were unparalleled. The atomic bomb dropping was severe, but we warned Japan, and the area will be inhabitable in about 14 days. If we did not drop the bomb, there would have been many more casualties than there were, both American and Japanese
The 20th century was marked by many wars and rebellious events with the millions of human victims among solders and civilians; nevertheless, political leaders do not change their tactics.
