Our Cruel World

Our Cruel World

Our Cruel World

Fiona Tuckett

Surely by now we should have all realised how simple it is to make peace. I became confused when I saw the coverage on the corruption in Syria. I really wondered how this could be happening. People have been to space, cloned a sheep and yet no one can master world harmony. Then I found out this isn't just happening in Syria, this happens all over the globe. And that's when I decided I wanted to shine a light on it. It's so saddening that so many are caught up in a whirlwind of disaster whether they volunteered for it or not. In this picture is someone taking a selfie and behind her is an upside down war zone. This looks strange to have a girl taking a selfie in a war zone. But both of these things happen all over our world today. Times have changed. But sadly war has not. Why is it that war zones are not uncommon in this modern society? The only thing out of place here is this seat of combat. Solve battles by expressing emotion in a peaceful creative way. We need to use our words. Strive for union.
