When you get children, something happens to you. For me anyhow, it changed my sensitivity and I can hardly look at anything harsh anymore without taking it in ten times more then before. And I can't just sit there in my sofa while mothers, parents, children and human beings are struggling with the fundamental aspects of life that everyone should have as a civil right when one is born. How can there be so many countries, places where people and children are killed, raped, starving, being murdered and abused every day?
I feel so blessed and grateful to live in this secure and peaceful environment, having the luck to be able to raise a child without being afraid every other minute that someone would come into my life, into my family and destroy it and abuse members in the most unthinkable manner. How can we enjoy life to the maximum with all the things that we most often take for granted, when the reality just outside the door is like this? It's such a large question and I am not seeking for answers. I just wish that it could be different.
