War in peace
I just read this article, which is about a special set of horrendous things that are going on in the world right now. It’s about Iranian professors and scientists being assassinated, likely by Israeli-trained Iranians. It’s also about the age-old tale of strife and hate between belligerent countries, and it’s about how we are a fragile species, creatures whose lives can be traumatized in a split moment, as one little girl is after seeing her father riveted by bullets in the same car.
Over and over. We’re so angry, so barbaric, and so easily broken.
