There they lie
Torn and tattered
Blown to pieces, like the ground of the terrain where they rest, where blood splattered,
Never found, never uncovered.
Their bones one of millions, piled in those fields
Overgrown by poppies and never revealed
And as the earth reclaims what once was there
May we once understand that war is never fair

What are the minimum ages for popular social media platforms?
You need to know to protect yourself!
For parents and carers too:
Its important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits. Some social networks use technologies that may not be right for some ages or engage with communities that are made up of people much older than your child.
