Nobody ever wins in a war. Not the instigators, not the defender, certainly not the civilians. There were lives lost. There were lives that were never the same afterwards. And then there were also those that lived to tell the hell of the atrocities of the war, they lived and witnessed it inside the enemy camp. They were the prisoners of war.
Peter William Sooby was a prisoner of war. But before that, he was part of a reconnaissance unit that had a mission in Cologne, Germany. He was captured by the German Army. And in the enemy’s turf, he documented the atrocities he endured.
When life’s waves get rough, we’re not alone on the boat
Life can throw a mean sucker punch and can hit you squarely in the face. And just like a fighter on the boxing ring, you shake it off and hit back, hard—really hard. But sometimes, all you hit is air. And sometimes, even when you’re down, life would also give you a wicked kick to the ribs.
What this means is that whenever you go through something hard, sometimes doubly hard, throwing a punch—literally—at life is not going to solve things. Fighting fire with fire could only end in more trouble. And bottling your grief inside will not help you either.
The proverb with African origin states, “It takes a village to raise a child,” meaning everyone in the community must interact with the children for these children to feel and grow secure, healthy, and whole.
So it also means everyone in the village or community contributes to the influences the children get exposed to while they are growing up. These influences may not necessarily be the “good” ones all the time. So long as there are lessons to be learned.
The body has the capacity to heal itself. As in the olden times, there were no advanced, futuristic practices applied to measure one’s health. The body was treated like a machine that performed well: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But with the advent of technology comes the upgrade in lifestyle. And while humanity is striving to ‘improve’ life on a daily basis with the goal of ‘making life easier’, humans are actually inadvertently introducing more harm to their already well-oiled machines - their bodies.
The world can be cruel sometimes, and most of the time, it is not easy to find someone that share your looks, your thoughts, and your feelings. However, we all should not worry about similar looks. We all would learn from a story about how friendship blooms despite the friends not having the same looks.
