In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Blanket
A blanket of snow, covered the ground,
The ring that fell there, couldn’t be found.
The newly married bride cried in despair,
How long shall I wait for snow to disappear!
The clown passing by had this to say,
Count your blessings fair one this day.
A mere ring is not worth crying for,
Shed a tear or two for those killed in the war!
Write about something you consider,”Ugly”– war, violence, failure,hatred—but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.
I consider war, “Ugly”, I write this because I think of all the lives that are lost. My thoughts are with the innocent children who are orphaned at a very young age, young wives who become widows.
The casualties of wars is heart wrenching, so many people are in a state of chaos. They lose their homes, part of their family. It is worse when the ones who survive the war lose their capacity to work.
I wonder where is the silver lining. Maybe if I think of it from a practical point of view, the war is waged when it endangers the safety of the people,for example Adolph Hitler’s plan to conquer the world. This war was necessary because it saved our world, and stopped Hitler from his evil designs.

War,violence,failure,hatred, all of these things cause a lot of dissension in us humans. We can if we sincerely want prevent it from happening.
War in my mind causes the most damage,it kills innocent people,destroys the sanctity of life, injures a lot of people beyond repair, if we humans can set aside our differences by peaceful means, this world would be a much better place to live. War is not the answer to settle our differences think about some countries destroyed because of war,their women and children maimed for life, what was their crime other than they happen to be the citizens of a war torn country.
Some countries have more weapons than they can use, why may I ask? Were we created to be destructive, what can we gain out of this misery, do we feel proud of ourselves when we watch children crippled for life and worse yet crippled and orphaned, just to show we are powerful, will there be a phase in our life when we are no longer capable of using these killer weapons, will it make us realize after all that destruction and horror, when we are left to agonize and wonder how could we participate in this horrible crime?
I hope a day will come when war will be a thing of the past, we’d realize we are no different from the rest of humans. The color of our skin is light or dark depends on where we live, the same applies to languages, way of life , food and other things.
We are same otherwise we laugh when we are happy, passing of our near and dear ones makes us cry, we have our likes and dislikes, we eat what pleases our taste buds, we listen to our favorite songs and watch our favorite movies, we read, write, though the language is different our expressions are not that different.
Is it not possible to build a world where we love each other ?
