PEOPLE WALK THROUGH THE RUBBLE OF THE PROPHET YOUNIS MOSQUE AFTER IT WAS DESTROYED IN A BOMB ATTACK BY MILITANTS OF THE ISLAMIC STATE, FORMERLY KNOWN AS ISIL, IN THE CITY OF MOSULMy niece, whom I consider far more intelligent than me, recently posted an article saying Gaza the End of Civilization. That got me thinking about how we destroy our past. My first recollection of this comes from Lebanon when there was a civil war and the beautiful city of Beirut was reduced to piles of rock. The next big instance that I remember was the Taliban. After coming to power they destroyed stone Buda’s and other artifacts that had been around for thousands of years. Now we have the Tomb of Jonah destroyed in Irag.But not only are they destroying the past they are killing children which are our future. The one that are not killed are becoming so poisoned by hate that I fear the cycle of destruction will continue. I wish my niece would have written this post she is far more an elegant writer then I. I wish we could just make all this stop, but I fear it will continue till we are extinct. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia
