The poignant picture of Syrian children in a refugee camp refers (The Witness, April 19).
Children are often casualties of wars and uprisings, as reported in the Middle East and elsewhere.
Now, right on our doorstep, viz Mozambique, we have a new generation of lost and orphaned children. Many have memories of having seen their parents being killed (decapitated or shot). Many, also, have been kidnapped for use as soldiers or as sexual objects.
What a sad reflection on human beings. In comparison to other animals.
But alas, so many flowers are born to blush unseen and waste their sweetness on the desert air. Apologies to Thomas Gray.
