Far away War

Other peoples pain is alive as the images are in front of your eyes but pain is ephemeral as are painful memories. During the invasion of Gaza in 2008-2009 by the Israeli army 1400 people were killed, thereof 400 children. By the time the last cries of protest died down those names were already forgotten.
