Bluest Skies

How could a day with such blue skies be so horrifying?

Ten years, two wars, and here two more children later, I still believe in peace and I still believe peace is not the opposite of war; peace is about learning to nurture compassion. It’s about helping one another rise up. Caring about one another, that’s the only thing we’ve really got.
