Join the Revolution!
By Sohaib Qasim
Our citizens were simply protesting against the presence of the British soldiers in their dear towns. It is true that they were not exhibiting the best behavior, cursing and throwing undesirable things at the soldiers. But the horrible deed the soldiers committed does not come into comparison to the misbehaving the colonists did. As tension increased between the two parties, the British redbacks suddenly fired their muskets upon the poor, defenseless colonists. In the end, five colonists died. Crispus Attucks' death, who died first due to the injuries sustained from the gun shot wounds, marks the first colonist death in this momentous time of revolution. Stand for your fallen brothers and resist the British injustice.
In the end, if you want to continue being treated unfairly, stay with and support the British. However, if you possess some form of common sense and can realize that you are being oppressed, rise up and fight the tyranny. The horrendous event of the Boston Massacre and the unfair tax laws should be enough to convince you to!
