Blood Bath

No, this has nothing to do with an earlier post about menstruation. 

There are far more important things going on in this little island. Things that people seem to not notice. Things that seem so far away but are actually barely 200km away. So many people are dying of sickness, starvation, and shelling! But we in Colombo, we in our safe little bubble, prefer to talk about our own little woes. I'm generalizing of course. But I know that i'm one of those in that bubble. Living in a country at war comes with a price. After some time , nature allows us to adapt to the environment, this adaptation makes us desentisized to the suffering that exists SO CLOSE. We learn to go through every day without having to think about the hundreds dying so protect us and the hundreds dying for no reason at all. Who ARE WE? We can call ourselves human because it's human to adapt. But it is definitely NOT humane

I want to do something. I should do something. When did I become so selfish? When did we close our eyes and ears and most importantly, our hearts??? 

A bientôt
