    "It was hell on earth," Corporal Lior Sharabi said. "People risked their lives not only for the wounded but also for the dead bodies." War is bad son don?t even think about it. My Grandmother who died some time back and had lost her first born son through repercussions of the mau mau uprising told me stories which would keep my eyes wide open until she was through, although excited and wishing that we humiliate a neighboring country whom l knew we were stronger than, she would weep and ask me never to wish on those lines. She told me she had seen the terrible of the sights in war. Well l guess if there are no wars there would be no tales to tell as at present everybody wants to know what is happening in Lebanon and Israel. All eyes are on the bull fight. Soon there will be no grass but dust. The future lesson on war? ?don?t even think about it?
