The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has escalated day by day,
and despite our proximity to Ukraine, here, in Italy, some people don’t
seems really scared of the terrible war the Ukranians are going through.
Especially us adolescents ,at the beginning ,seemed not to realize the
devastation and death this incomprehensible war is causing,as it seemed
too remote to us, but now we feel it horrifying real.
Thanks God, we still live in a democratic country where peace is a fondamental
and important value to be respected by everyone, so we don’t have the true
cognizance of what beeing at war really means, if not through pictures, videos
and immages on television.
The war is bad, everyone says, but only if you are personally involved, or your
relatives, parents, siblings or children are its victims you can really understand
the deep and huge pain that only a war can produce.
It’s crazy, to think that one man can just come and destroy everything in a moment,
it’s like a horror film or a video game which my generation is used to play, but the
Ukrainian teenagers don’t play any virtual fight, that’s their real life.
They hoped they would never see their country overrun,their homes destroyed and
their brothers and fathers draft.
Let’s put into the place of the Ukranian teenagers, forced out their homes, travelling
alone and carrying their lives in their luggage….
How would we feel ?
