I ran across a quote today, and thought how true this is, especially looking at what is going on in the world today.
The quote was written in German and goes thus:
*Es töten sich Menschen, die sich nicht kennen, im Auftrag von Menschen, die sich zwar kennen, aber nicht töten.*
*People who do not know themselves kill each other, assigned by people who know each other, but do not kill themselves.*
The author of this quote is a Pastor in Leipzig (Germany) who held a commemorative ceremony on the 200th anniversary of those killed during the 1813 Battle of Nations in Leipzig.
After reading this sentence, and knowing how many wars are being fought, I once more realised how we humans are unable to learn from the past.
