Hello my dear readers, I hope everyone is safe wherever you are.
We’re living a disheartening moment in history.
I’m sure everybody knows what is going on in Europe at the moment and I guess everybody is reacting in a very different and personal way.
Although I’m living in a relatively quiet and safe place – save for the normal average dose of micro-crime always present in any European capital – I cannot help to feel worried and in apprehension.
These days loads of articles have been written, loads of reports have been filmed and loads of words have been said. Every person, country, politicians have their own personal opinion and their way to react.
I’m not here to share knowledge as I haven’t enough of it. I’m not here to give new information, perspective or view as I’m not expert.
But I can tell you how I feel.
I feel sad, I feel worried, I feel my heart squeezed tight.
I feel sad for the situation a civilised world, that should learn from its own history, put itself into. We didn’t learn anything from our history, from the speech witnesses from previous war brought to us through suffering. It sounds like we cannot do better than self-destroy us.
I feel worried for my friends who are sitting on the edge of the chair hoping not to receive a bad news from their families.
I feel my heart squeezing and hurting in watching the images flooding all the media, all those poor people trying to escape, those children that don’t know whether they will survive or whether they’ll be orphans the day after.
It’s too sad and it’s too painful.
My thought are all for the civilians and the innocents on both sides.
I wish for them to hang in there and hope a swift end of this ridiculous and sad situation.
See you next week, my dears
