I am so saddened by the news today.... I feel empty all of a sudden... aching... every little cell in my body grieves. I felt like this many times before and whenever I heard of violence, death and destruction... This time it is over the death of a wonderful giving man, Vittorio Arrigon. on the hands of ignorant people who never once thought about his life, his family, his cause. Never once thought that killing one life to save another... Is like killing millions of lives.
I feel for every person his soul touched... I feel for his family and friends... my heart aches for all of them. My heart aches for the Gazan people... Some people might hate me for this... might disagree... I understand that it happened in Gaza, but please remember that generalizations are dangerous at such sensitive times. The ordinary people of Gaza, are mourning and feeling the loss as well, for they understand what it feels like to lose a loved one... as all the other people in that area who have lost loved ones. And their source of solace and joy, ease of suffering and humanity came from this generous gentle soul.
What happened was the result of sheer hate, ignorance and selfishness which is quite widespread in that region, and something must be done about this.... Any side, country, front or faction should stop... stop and think what this madness is bringing.... many coffins from both sides...
I loathe violence in any form or matter from any faction/front/country. I fear it... it pains me! I believe in Human Rights, love, forgiveness and understanding.
