Letters From the Battlefield In Jammu Kashmir

Letters From The Battlefield In   Jammu Kashmir 

The rage you carry inside you  The hatred that haunts you  Is seen in your posture  Your willingness to hurt an innocent...

This is not a war you can win sir Your fight is not with her  Your battle began long before you wore the uniform of terror....

Your emptiness Your soullessness is now broadcast to the world  You can kill You can maim Can you name sir What you battle inside? 

Only the coward strikes an innocent Only a bully dominates to submission You are not a soldier You are a purveyor of terror A vigilante on the prowl  Complicit in horror....   You may think you've won the battle  But you are sadly mistaken For you will fail to prevail in the war Raged solely against yourself .......

So moving. I’ll be in Jaipur in March. May peace prevail in Kashmir by then.

Hello, Linda, I hope your letter can be read by those who's been oppressing innocent people. Your words cut deep to the soul. Keep fighting, keep writing!

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Linda,

Thanks for sharing your passionate post. I really agree with you, but part of me started wondering about the soldier, too. Should we be blaming them for carrying out orders or blaming the ones who are making them?! Or, even better, creating a peaceful world for all, where there is no hate and no blame...

These are questions that we peace loving people have been asking for a long time....of course the soldier iscarrying out orders ....

Begging the over riding question:
Who is my enemy?
Blessings

Your words cut deep into the core of the spirit and soul. This war has gone on for too long, you can fight the world but for how long will they ignore the war they have inside them, a war against their own worthlessness. They kill to end what? When they should be killing the demon within their souls

Hello Linda_4!
Thanks for sharing. Those who give orders are different from those who execute and the third party which includes women and children suffer.
