The ceremonies on TV were lengthy. Something like 500 people were buried.
The day before, trucks loaded with coffins had passed through Sarajevo. The street was sprinkled with rose-water. People attached flowers to the trucks.
No people should have to endure this, but it's happening again, in Syria, in Palestine, in Iraq, in Myanmar.
When people aren't massacring each other, they are destroying the natural world.
Killing off the elephants and rhinos and giraffes and tigers and lions for no good reason.
