What’s going on in Burma, Kashmir, Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, & so many other places on every other continent can be overwhelming. Some who lay claim to deeper sensitivities back off to bury themselves in poetry & ignorance. With all due respect to their poetic souls, yeah right; cut the crap! If war, occupation, & genocide are unbearable to witness, then imagine what a hell on earth they are to endure. No one is too sensitive to stand with them against these monstrous crimes. Not standing with them is a betrayal of their humanity & our own.
