Did You Know?
We wake up have our morning coffee or tea, take a 20 minute jog, feed the dog and get the children off to school – meanwhile we (US) are dropping bomb all day long!
The US drops bombs everyday – According to new figures, the US dropped nearly three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day.
We live in a state of perpetual war, and we never feel it. While you get your gelato at the hip place where they put those cute little mint leaves on the side, someone is being bombed in your name. While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names.
Once every 12 minutes.
