Man's cruelty to man, to animals, to the Earth itself. . . Will that ever end?

I have missed you. Is everything all right?

Meda, I did not realise you were so directly affected until I read the comment above. I am so sorry. .
the Russians took my father in 1940 when they invaded Latvia. 100,000 people in June alone were either marched into the nearest wood and slaughtered or sent to Siberia. I grieve with you on your day of mourning.

Meda, each year at this time must be especially difficult for you and the other families. Hopefully one day justice will be served.

Your pictures are beautiful. I agree with Espresso, red among white. The sorrow among the hope. Be well.

Dear Sandra, you are a person with a big heart. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for every of your friendly comment, for your understanding and every single word that you posted to me. Justice is slow in this world but I believe in God and I know that He judged quickly and fairly. (Hug)

Arija

Dear Arija, some things one can never forget. Some things one mustn’t forget. Life goes on and we only have to learn how to live with what happened. As for the mothers of Srebrenica, who survived, their only goal is to find the bones of their loved ones which are still scattered over the hills and forests or secondary graves and of course that the justice is served. I am sorry to hear about your father and I completely understand your feelings. Nobody can understand that better than those who experienced that.
Thank you very much for your friendly comments full of compassion. As for me I am ok, just been very busy lately both at work and home. (Hug)

Flor

Justice always arrives.
If not on this World will be more terrible in Another World.
This is what the guilty people must know.
As we know almost all the names,we can be sure God knows them all.

A very sad and unbelievable story.

Andrea

I completely agree with you and believe in that. Thank you very much for your comment.

Yes, it is unbelievable and it is sad that it is a true life story. Thanks for your comment.

Arija said...

Thank you for your visit my dear. I did not tell you all, my brother, who was a war invalid, lost an arm and a leg, was in the Latvian army protecting our country against the Russian bear. Our army was incorporated i the German army. He spent 2 years in an English P.O.W. camp (they were not very nice to their prisoners), we found him miraculously after he got out but he went back to Latvia.
He was tried for war crimes with witnesses he had never seen in his life and spent 15 years in a Russian concentration camp.
I only got to see him once more before he died.
Thus, your pain is also my pain...

So many holocosts around the world and looking for justice. Your flowery tribute is very beautiful.
The Palestinan holocost 1948,when the P. Poeple were expelled from their land and homes and killed has never been aknowledged by the west. What is justice?

Anna said...

There's always a place in our hearts to remember our loved ones. A sad reminder of the tragic deaths.

Pietro said...

A terrible and unbelievable story. Your wonderful pictures are really a great tribute.

Oh my, this is terrible and so sad. My heart aches for so much cruelty to so many innocent people.

Man's inhumanity to his fellow man. Someday He will judge all those responsible, if they have not turned from their wicked ways. And that day will be much worse than what was experienced here.

May you and all the mothers find peace and comfort.
