Peace is good. War is bad. That goes without saying. But for a lot of people, when they consider the “cost” of war, what immediately springs to mind is only the death toll among the soldiers who fight. The human toll of war is far, far worse than that – so bad, in fact, that there’s an Orwellian double-speak name for it: Collateral Damage. That’s a nice way of talking about the civilians and their homes who were simply in the way when the war raged through. And it’s not just the immediate civilian casualties that are the issue. Hundreds of thousands of refugees are displaced every year due to conflict around the globe. When – or even, if – they can return to their homes, they’re coming back to areas where virtually nothing has been left intact.
Conflict lies at the heart of every human drama. But while we love it on our film and television screens, when its less entertainment and more of a way of life, it’s a terrible environment to try to survive. Thankfully, there are people and organisations working tirelessly to help those impacted by the horrors of war – whether they’re sent to fight, or are just fighting to survive.
