Have you , ever seen glass , char on your roads and bloods flowing in your gutter....
I was listening to a radio program on the BBC world service called "The Outlook", a program broadcasted daily.. And today they inteviewed a young Israeli women ,I think she was in her twenties , who survived not 1 not 2 not 3 but 4 suicide bombings .. Really quite amazing actually.
But in the end she was (on the surface atleast) quiet unperturbed...
It's Strange what some people living in certain environs get used to , and their self-definition of "normal" is different simply on the basis of things around them if they seem hellish to others.
I'll Give you a example... Actually
on Monday , August 25, 2003 two bombs went off in mumbai ( formerly Bombay) and this I now I felt at the time , in the form of a blog entry ,from my archives
Monday, August 25, 2003
Location : Same
Environment : Tense
Subject-- It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Death and Destruction , shattered glass on the grounds,puddles of blood and the sounds of the raging sea in the background.It's so easy to kill a man , but it's much harder to forgive him. Fear in people eyes , blood on their faces.
Bombs go off everyday in the hearts and minds of men not explosives but of hatred.Hatred has no end.
Hatred has no end.
Hatred is our end .
