Silencing the Guns
Silencing the Guns: Realities of Conflicts (1/1)

"When  Elephants fight, the poor grass suffers" Reading Facebook stories today, alot of opinions have been sampled with the pic of this little girl, I am as well sharing. On one side, sampled ooinioms amd judgments ascertain that this picture was taken some where in Bamenda, while many others stand on the contrary   that it is fake. My Point, I don't care if it is fake or real! But this picture is the sad reality of what is ongoing in the North West and South west Regions of Cameroon. Babies have been orphaned  Pregnant women killed why not Nursing mothers.  The Guns donot chose who to kill, it obeys the orders it receives accordingly.  This is how much we have been reduced by a war we did not sign for. This is how miserable our Lives have been for three plus year and still counting.  Yes it is this Bad! Many will act like everything is Okk and some of us are exaggerating.... 

The latest trends... Bamenda I have watched videos where our mothers are crying because their children are slaughtered like meat. I have seen Humans, burnt alive by  fellow human being.  Sacrilege. Those who preach Peace Don't come with Guns.

Guns are made to KILL To you inciting violence, Jubilating over the dead of another human being, I Hope you never Die To you, having the guns,  making life so unbearable, dictating to us, when we Live or Die, I hope you escape Death too! To you, Yes you... You, choosing to waste Lives because you have a Gun, I hope you stay Alive for ever. No Amount of Explanation given can corroborate How wicked the Heart of man.

The Economy of Armed conflict  Subject for another day. This Table must be shaken.#Silencingtheguns2020 #NotoWar#PeaceIsPossible #UNSCR1325 #UNSCR2250 #NotATarget

Hello Caryn,

How are you? Congrats on your first post, dear. I'm so sorry to hear about the continuation of the war. I don't think anyone's exaggerating or that it isn't bad. I just wish I could help. I literally don't know what to say anymore because it keeps going and going:-( Horrible.

I hope you and your loved ones stay safe, too, dear.

Do let us know how we can help, and let us know how you're coping, or not coping. We are here for you!

Hello Caryn,
Welcome to the Pulse and thank you for drawing attention to the realities of people West of the Mungo. It is a painful situation which has left gaping holes in our hearts and we can only hope this comes to pass sooner than later. Helas, as the years pile, it could appear a hope in futility, but still, we hope.
