The World War I cemeteries around Ypres are always worth a visit. But for me every time it is a sad one. It reminds me all the time of all the armed conflicts that still roam our planet despite our 'this should never happen again'.
It does not make me proud to be a human being. What a disgustful race are we! The history of human kind is one of constant killing for the purpose of power and money. And it goes on and on and on!
It will never stop; this is the way we are and it has nothing to do with the increasing population as it has always been that way; we even fight for the sake of our religions, which I thought preaches peace. But preaching is easy.
Luckily we live in a part of the world where we are free of any major armed conflict for 75 years now. Let's hope it stays that way.
