     I hate war.  This simple sentence would say it all, except I hear on the news that another war may be on the verge of breaking out:  the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Palestine.
     There are already at least two wars in the Middle East--Afghanistan and Iraq, if you don't count the "Arabic Spring" conflicts going on in other countries.  People are dying there, being displaced, seeing their homes destroyed.  Children are suffering with the same troubles as soldiers coming back home from wars:  stress disorders, war wounds, night terrors.   Do we really need to see this happen, see generations of children suffer for the rages of nations?
    It makes me want to cry, and to call out to Mr. Netanyahu and the Hamas leaders in Palestine:  do you love children?  do you?  Because, if you do, you have to stop this.  Now. Because they will suffer...as they already are suffering in so many places.
     Ireland did it.  The Orangemen and the Republicans took a chance, and buried the hatchet once and for all.  The people of Northern Ireland, still recovering from decades of conflict, are yet finding that the bloom of peace is lovely, healing their country, making things better, even though the econamical situation is still iffy--as it is in so many places, the USA included.   I am so proud of their efforts, so grateful and glad for their children.  No more deaths in the night:  what a gift.  No more weeping widows(minus the everyday tragedies like disease--cancer and others...{never mind, cancer, aids:  we have our sights set on you, believe it!}).
    People of the United Nations:  please stop this.  the holiday season is starting, and this will dim the joy of so many, if it hasn't already.   People of the world, take note--there has to be a better answer than war.

     I hate war.  I said it in the beginning of this entry, and repeat it here.  War does not profit anyone except the weapons makers, the haters who don't see others as equal to themselves...and all it breeds is years of pain.
    Stop this.  Please.
