Some time ago… ‘never again’ again and again

After exiting the Halabja Museum, which documents Saddam’s gassing of the Kurds — this city where about 5,000 men, women, and children died from nerve, skin, and respiratory agents — I wrote this:

For as many museums we built to condemn and remember genocide, it doesn’t seem to stop them.


How can something so evil happen in a place so beautiful?

Beholding the evil and goodness of man… ancient brutality, world wars, forced hunger, and my own evil heart that does what it doesn’t, yet does, want.
