A Macabre Dawn

A Macabre Dawn !

I happened to be listening to the radio on the 19th of March at 3.00 am in the morning, and heard the news that the war had started in Iraq. I was filled with an overwhelming sadness for all those mothers and children whose lives would be thrown into turmoil.
Dawn breaking over Bagdad.
fireball from missile over Bagdad
This picture I took from the internet and rightfully belongs to Reuter news. This is no dawn breaking on another ordinary day, but a fireball lighting up the sky as the first guided missile hits Bagdad in the early hours of Thursday morning. A macabre dawn indeed.
