War is a terrible thing. It destroys human life. Even when a person chooses to live, even when living conditions are normal, it is already a ruined life. Forever.
I cannot listen to the brutal fact that a soldier died. A civilian was killed. Was taken prisoner. Returned from captivity, Had to leave his home… I cannot, because if I get to close to each of them, if I learn the story of the life of this man or woman, then I understand that this is the whole world. Each persons life is our whole world! And it is destroyed.
It is like a broken bowl. You can glue it together, but it will never be the same again. But we all try not to see. Not to feel. Not to notice that our world is broken. Forever.
