Fight for Your rights, but…
Is war really necessary?
Today is the day in which the celebration of the Battle of the Boyne is taking a place. In 1690, the crowned kings of England, Scontland and Ireland faced each other on the battlefield (north of Dublin, across the River Boyne) for the last time. This is why I will bring up a war topic here.
The painting above is a World War II battle scene that I composed. I have used acrylic paint to complete it. I know that this is a completely different era, but the picture is pretty much the same every war.
While doing a research on 2nd World War I have looked at the images and articles in newspapers, books and internet and I found a qoute:
“How do soldiers killing each other solve the world’s problems?”

Exactly! How? Does it help people to get what they want/what they need by loosing their families? Or their own lives? How is this helping?
Iiunderstand, “Sometimes You have to fight in order to be free” as Jared Leto said. But the fight in which You kill each other, often innocent people? Does not make any sence.
Of course, people who were kidnapped and imprisoned during Nazi Germany they had to fight in order to be free. But to begin with, why were they kidnapped and imprisoned in these concentration camps? Was it really necessary?
A compromise can be found. Sometimes it comes easier and sometimes harder to find, but You can find it if You truly want to. In order to get it You, as well as others, have to be willing to give up something or otherwise the innocent people are getting hurt (the most).
It’s about jealousy and desires. Stop wanting other’s possesions and start appriciating what You have.
