After the horrors of the first - who could have predicted a second.

Yes, so we had hoped... and again in subsequent wars - there's something fundamental we humans don't seem to be getting

It's sad that we cannot learn the lesson.

I fear wars will continue as long as there are people.

Hopes are high but still they remain. The truth prevails and one is still hoping! Nicely Kathe!

Hope is good, if only we could unlearn our past mistakes.

Very well done. I do fear that peace will never happen. If families can't get along what chance to different cultures have. Not much.

Have a fabulous day honey. :)
