The Falklands War happened in 1982. Argentina and Britain fought in this war. This news is about a man from Argentina.

He is a goldsmith. He does not want war. He wants peace. He takes metal from the Falklands War. He uses Argentinian and British metal. He mixes the metals together. He makes roses from the new metal. He calls his project Two Roses of Peace.

Difficult words: fought (past of “fight”), goldsmith (a person who makes golden things), peace (the opposite of “war”).
