It’s a disgrace when a mother has to watch her children die of something preventable.
IRINNEWS reports on the living experiences of a mother (in Somalia) who, in search of a better life, pulls her family out of a war zone only to have them claimed by death (a shorter time later) through lack of food and sitting in the open rain storms for ‘over 18 hours’.
Why is it that the world is not short of economic assets, financial funds, wood and ‘man power’, yet many like this woman have to eat wild shrubs in hopes of stopping hunger for 1 day, and many have no shelter to cover them from the storms. A wooden shelter and a meal is all she, like many seek, yet despite the search, in many places this cannot be found.
How much –time or money- does a shelter of wood cost (literally) that it could not be built to secure the safety of living beings from death by Mother Nature? Is the life of someone worth less than the thirty minutes it takes to build a shed?
To have your children survive a war zone, but die because there was/is ‘no room in the inn’ (allegorically speaking) during the rain storms… what is humanity’s justification?
A mother raises a child, then buries that which she pours her hopes, dreams, and trials into. She hopes to see a better future for her children than she received for herself…she knocks on the door of hope and pleads to humanity and no one lets her in. She hushes her children in her arms and says that things will get better after the storm, and so they sleep during the storm, but two of them NEVER WAKE UP; they will never get to see the sun (literally and metaphorically).
