Imagine there is no war, my friend.

Imagine there is no war, my friend.

Dear child
The world weeps blood.
Whole world blinded by hate and separation.
Who will tell the child?
He was born with no chance or opportunity.
Born to learn to survive daily.
Living in refugees camps. Unwanted and forgotten.

By a River
I drove by a river with food, water and medicine on a Red Cross mission.
I saw bodies floating in the river.
Me and my soldiers dragged the bodies to the shore.
24 people. Old people and children.
Beaten to death and left.
Me and my soldiers cried for the people killed for the sake of religion.
We prayed they found a better place.
I wondered did God see the pain and the suffering of our world?
I learned this day how cold man can be.
