I was speaking at a confrence the other day, talking about the effects of war on refugees and vet's from the military and how it affected their ability to function in ordinary life afterwards, making a working productive life quite a challenge. Now... what i found from the questions i got, disturbed me quite alot. one person actually asked with the beginning line: "Now just becourse a vet saw someone die by beheading..." "..ive seen that on TV, so what i dont run around using that as an excuse."... It baffeld me, and i found my self thinking about this, a song i made some years ago (not needed to watch for the subject, just think it describe my mood atm.) So have people lost their understanding, that what happens in the TV is REAL sometimes? Movie or reality people dont differ anymore? I look at my own children, and wounder... how do u ensure the survival of empathy in a world that portrays more violence, death and destruction than imagineble just a few years ago.
