This has been going on for so long now, violence, death, destruction ect. As adults are we not responsible for our actions, as a Country , is the Government responsible for theirs?? Everyone knows deep down that is about POWER, RELIGION and MONEY. What about the CHILDREN? Innocent victims of all this destruction. They are already desensitized from all this violence now, how are they going to grow up (the ones that happen to survive) and become fair, compationate, truthful adults that one day may become leaders of their country?

Our lifetime on this planet is not forever, even for those who think that destroying other human beings make them a hero in some others eyes or they for some reason or another think that they will return to this planet as what, a dog?? Goat?? People that take other people's lives are not remembered in a compationate way only as weak, insecure individuals that others like to prey upon to do their dirty deeds. If people do not value their own lives, they certainly wouldn't value someone else's which has been proven over and over again. We need to teach the children that this is wrong and LIFE is precious. Only through proper education and strong loving people with kindness in their heart may we finally see some light coming through all this darkness. Maybe everyone on both sides need to step back and see that in destroying everything around them are they not also destroying our planet?
