I would rather go blind than to see the corpse of the massacred children, mothers, and youth; I would rather go deaf than hearing the groans, the wails, and the sobs here and there; I would rather go palsy than standing helplessly and hopelessly in the middle of nowhere. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace, may the wounds of the injured heal fast, and God comfort the grieving souls 😦
May the Almighty intervene in the #OromoProtest, and the vain blood sheds of civilians.
“To speak of this is painful for me:
to keep silence is no less pain.
On every side is suffering.”
— Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound (as cited on Tower in the Sky)
