'It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too will end, that peace and tranquillity will return once more. In the meantime I must hold on to my ideals. Perhaps, the day will come when I’ll be able to realise them.'
Sunny over at Pickled Politics has just reminded me that it's Holocaust Memorial Day. Please take the time to read his post and the sites linked to below. If I were a more intelligent person I'd say something sensitive, profound and enlightening but I'm not so I shall just spark up a candle and pray it never happens again.
