      I think 99… percent of the entire people on the globe are victims of wars started by leaders who account for less than 1 percent for their greed for wealth and name. I suppose you and I both belong to the larger group (or not🙂 ?), and that must be why feel in the same way.

  5. All three of these are so powerful. Thanks for including so much thought and emotion in so few words.
