Others raced to and fro to collect charred corpses from among burning vehicles and shops, many firing Kalashnikov rifles into the air.
Take steps today to break away from the WAR machine. Because if you are not against it, then you are part of it.

You must decide what you stand for, love or greed.
It's now or never. People are dying. Tomorrow it will be us.
