Gaza

While listening to the news this morning I fell into tears over the bombing of civilian homes in Gaza while they were sleeping.  A mother told a reporter that one of her children asked her sibling why God made Israelis to which he replied, “So they can kill us and we can go straight to heaven.”  The mother went on to say, “They do not see them as human… How can I explain that they are human when they are killing us like this?”  So much violence on both sides against innocent civilians!

Matthew sometimes jokes that I am banned from hearing the news (and reading books by Camus) because I become so depressed over it but how will anything ever begin to change if so many of us are unaware of world events and those who are do not shed a tear?
