Flag of peace

Sometimes I require of myself that I read an article from the Times before proceeding to Wordle, etc.

Today it was a description of a hospital in Gaza. Oh god. Imagine being a doctor and rushing to incoming in the ER to find out one’s own children had been killed. The New York Times today:

On Wednesday, Dr. Abu Safyia said, he was working with a colleague in the hospital’s neonatal intensive-care unit — one of two units that still had power amid a severe fuel shortage — when casualties from Jabaliya started arriving.

When they rushed down to the emergency room to help, he said, his colleague was stunned to see that two of her own children were among the dead. Her 9-year-old and 7-year-old had been killed in their home, he said, along with several of her siblings and relatives.

That’s gonna stay with me today.

    I don’t know anything anymore. I read. I listen. I study. I understand less and less. I keep falling out of the ‘tree of knowledge’. Where is g.o.d., hmm?

      Yeah. So much suffering on both sides. I think so many of us support Israel’s right to sovereignty AND the Palestinian’s right to a peaceful homeland. Mostly I am staying quiet though. So easy to be misinterpreted.
