Recent air strikes in Syria. While New York City [ where the UN is located] celebrates it first Spring day with trees blossoming, today’s Spanish newspaper El Pais raises its darkest concern that this new conflict could develop into the next World War! Based on history facts, it seems virtually impossible to remove from men the concept of living on earth weapon free. My 2008 Los Angeles Times‘ s Illustration for the review of the book “Zubaida’s Window” on the Iraq War becomes oddly “recyclable”… until men decide to live in harmony, it will remain hopeless for me to switch to a gracious theme and by the same token to erase from my memory the endlessly recall of my civil war refugees mother’s hardships.
