    How about you start with a description of a victim of some form of fighting? Maybe a kid that is sobbing and hiding behind a sofa?

    Or look into the future and describe a post-apocalyptic world that has been marred by fighting from a fake world war of some kind and describe it as a prophecy.

    give comparisons of where fighting happened but made things worse e.g. in world war one britain got involved in the war, and yet all that came from it was suffering only for it to happen 20 years later all over again. then give a modern day example maybe, the current war in syria and how all that brings is pain to people. try to keep this all as non fiction as possible, fiction isn't necessary as this isn't the transactional writing exam. make sure to throw in some stats by 'professionals' (just make them up)
