Reaching for Hope

As the Israelis bring a temporary end to bombing, as Hezbollah calls for an end to Israel, as the Far Right Christian Fundamentalists call for an end to the world, officials attempt to grasp the geopolitics, while the Lebanese are crushed, women and children, helpless to flee, helpless to protect themselves, are caught in the violence.

It’s always like that, nations playing strategic, geopolitical games while innocent people die, reaching for hope that doesn’t exist.
