Children are certainly the worst affected by war and do need specialist services to deal with that trauma.

War Is Not Healthy For Children And Other Living Things

A timeless quote for all ages and all places that holds great Truth.

My heart breaks for all those damaged children. PTSD is a disease which can stay with you for the rest of your life. I wish them all well.

The people who start and continue wars never think of the children involved.

Thanks for all your comments, folks. Winn, I often think that. How can we do that to our children?

Thanks for sharing this Judy, maybe if people would think of all the damage incurred by wars, they would reconsider starting one.
