(The following is a fictional account of ANZAC morning as imagined by a 6-year old girl.)
We arrived at Anzac Cove (not Brighton Beach).
I heard a bullet zoom past my ear. I was getting out of the boat when I heard a bullet explode next to me.
One of the soldiers got shot in the leg and that soldier was my best friend Nick. Nick was one of the oldest soldiers. Then I heard several more bombs explode beside our boat.
A few seconds later I saw a bullet shoot past my feet. Quickly I dived down onto the sand. It was the worst morning ever.
