Because you too, you wake up every morning hoping for a better future

Lately, I've been trying to burry my head in my pillow as long as I can, as I'm desperately trying to escape the insane escalation of bloodshed surrounding us.
I'm sitting now and thinking that even basic things can't happen somewhere in the middle east.. that on the other side of the world, many people no longer have the comfort to sit on a sofa and think because they are too busy trying to survive.
I always wonder: what can I do to help? All forms of solidarity that come to my mind sound very pathetic. That's why I feel so small in front of a big reality determined by what it seems like invincible factors.
I am conscious that we are living in a situation which craves for a sustainable solution. However, I am just part of my entourage in real life and virtually.
As a matter of fact, I've been trying to avoid every kind of mainstream or social media, to disappear for a while because I'm sick of these protagonist and antagonist propagandas spreading everywhere cultivating nothing but  hate speech and laying the ground for a project of new generations doomed to live in war.
But I also see these angry people from the four corners of the world protesting, donating and praying. And I feel so overwhelmed with this parade of international compassion. I hear that third voice rising against all this hatred anarchy, all this moral insanity. A wave which is challenging the ongoing project of ever-lasting war and working on replacing it with a project of new generations that know the value of peace. It's the voice of those who love children independently of their nationality. It's the voice of life.
Because hundreds of children are dying every day in Gaza, Syria, Iraq...

Because you too, you wake up every morning hoping for a better future, stand up and say: ENOUGH!
