We only see war through square images
    #2764245 - 06/04/04 07:17 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

D-Day was not very long ago.

I just saw a few snips of footage of the Normandy Beach landing on tv. Hundred of guys, some even younger than me (im 20), wading rather calmly-looking through the waist deep water towards the chaos on shore.

i cant fathom it. it may as well have happened a million years ago in another dimension.

people are dying everywheres right now... not on television, but on the same ground as us, if you hopped on a plane you could fly for only a few hours and then you would be right over them watching them die. Humans like us, being seperated from their own flesh and bone.

and yet i feel light years away from it all. isolationism works.

whoever you are out there , I'm alive because you died.

You only feel that way because death seems so impossible and unnatural to you. Soon you realize how cheap life really is and in that you begin to value your own. It sounds funny but you'll get it eventally.

If you ever really think how cheap life is; its saddening. To think that under their metal helmets rests 20 years of memorizes and life. A full 20 years gone instantly.

In some way, it is almost impossible for me to imagine the carnage of WW1 and WW2 !

Sure, I have seen cinema footage, pictures, read historical books and so, but the horror of these years, the concentration camps, the changing of the lives of everyone for the worse... So cruel that I can't really imagine that happening in my world now. Maybe because I am from Europe and most people here have gotten wiser after all our bloody history.

I hope something like the world wars never comes to this world again, even a place like Iraq is not as bloody as the beaches of Normandy were back then!

But on a bright note: all those dead 19 - 25 yr. olds really get the economy boosting!
