Thankfully it stands, but I wished there was damage. Actually I just wish the fighting would stop.

Wars are destructive: of buildings, forests, meadows, and of people. We need to keep working towards deliberative democracy, not armed insurrection

I wonder how they feel about crusaders? They only seem to want our help when they are needing to start more wars and extremism.

Not only are they wiping out their own people, I don't know how any living thing survives, but they are robbing the world of their historic treasures.

Why can't we all try to get along?

If we would just help or ignore one another, we could easily make Earth a paradise.
