In our class we have been working with analogies. So for one of our homework we had to make analogies for a bunch of things that are related to the Revolutionary War(Revolutionary War Analogies). One of them that we had to make an analogy for was the shot heard round the world. So mine was: The Shot Heard Round the World is to the start of the war as the gunshot at a track meet starts the race. The shot heard round the world was the thing that started the revolutionary war and that is why I related it to when they shot the gun a track meet that starts the race.
