I never experienced how war is and so I don't know if I have the right to write about the hell of war. Nevertheless I will express my mind and my opinion about war.
We see pictures and we can't believe what we see but there are true pictures in the News.
Falling bombs and rockets, shooting men with guns.
People on the run ... screaming people ... injured people ... dying and dead people.
Lonely kids which have lost their families, have lost their home, have lost their childhood.
Blood everywhere, body parts on the street and empty shoes.
Buildings are ruins, there are only mountains of rubble.
People seek in the rubble, they seek for spilled people, seek for memories, seek for useful things under the rubble.
They trying to find someone who is still alive or to find somewhat ... what they can use.
They are digging for pieces of their former life.
They dig with their bare hands, covered with dust. Dust on their their clothes, dust in their hair, dust in their faces.
Eyes full with tears, desperate and hopeless. Silent accusation, asking for help.
Silent prayers and the eternal question: WHY??????????????
Thousands of why ... but ... no single answer.
What will become of the children? Will they drive on the road of war?
They grow up with hatred, they grow up with violence, they grow up without hope for better times. They know death more than life.
What will happen? Only revenge and retribution? Always the question of blame? No forgiveness until eternity?
How long must the people weep and suffer? Men weep for women and women for men, parents for her children, children for her parents....friends for friends?
For neighbors and colleagues and for so many nameless dead persons?
Who counts the tears and the screams?
Will be played the song of mankindonly only on weapons?
Are rockets the drums, are sirens the clarinets, is rifl fire the rhythm and the screams of people the melody? That's a Song of horror. No one will listen to.
Where are the fiddles, where are the harps and where the lovely voices of the singers? No blessing and consolation for ear and soul?
Peace and forgiveness are quiet voices but they are powerful and strong and they can fulfil the eternal dream of humanity for peace, freedom and love.
Deep is the longing of people for peace, they are not opponents or enemies, they want live together in peace.
Give the people the voice and the politician and the rulers of the religions the ability to listen and to understand, to take responsibility.
They have the power to stop and to avoid war.
