The world is burning

The family has understood one thing:

even a short conflict destroys

more than anything in the world.

What has been destroyed

can never be as it was before.

A horrible form of conflict is war.

‘The air is poisonous’, coughed the children.

‘Half of the forest is burning.

We can’t play anywhere now.

Everything is destroyed or burnt down.’

War is dangerous for all.
