As humans we are more similar then different.
One always forgets that in war. That’s someone’s mother you shot. That was someone’s child. Someone’s infant. Someone’s ageing father. Innocents.

A murder is a murder is a murder. Say it how it is. Own up to your actions. After all, you chose to commit the crime.
