When you decide to go to a place that has experienced so much war, you tend to keep up with current events every day.
I recognize that it is a privilege to check out from time to time.
There is a demonstration occurring most probably as I write this. Let us hope that it does not lead to war. As Laure expresses, let us not succomb to pessimism. Let us believe in the human spirit's desire for peace and coexistence.
I am finally going to say goodnight and dream that things will have turned out to be positive and peaceful by the time I awake.
