MEEKS: Images that haunt me

This morning I was reflecting upon some of the haunting images that circle through my mind. The most haunting ones are around the pictures of the children I see who have been killed in the Gaza Strip in the past few days. These images in my mind are accompanied by the telling of the horror stories of war that I heard a few days ago as Syrian children shared what it is like for them trying to survive in their war torn land. I remember one little girl talking about the cat that she and the children with her had to slaughter to eat. She was very sad because the cat had become their friend prior to the slaughter.
