Non-Sequitur by Wiley (an Ohio Sunday comic strip)

Mood: Touched

Girl: I've gotta tell you Mister... that's an awfully boring tattoo on your arm. It's just a bunch of numbers.

Man: Well, I was about your age when I got it, and I keep it as a reminder.

Girl: Oh...a reminder of happier days?

Man: No...of a time when the world went mad.
Imagine yourself in a land where your countrymen followed the voice of political extremists who didn't like your religion. Imagine having everything taken from you, your entire family sent to a concentration camp as slave laborers, then systematically murdered. In this place they even take your name and replace it with a number tattooed on your arm. It was called The Holocaust, when millions of people perished just because of their faith...

(Little Girl starts to cry.)

Little Girl: So you kept it to remind yourself about the dangers of political extremism?

Man: No, my dear. To remind you.

*heavy sigh* I don't think we're reminded enough... I wnet to the local premiere of the BBC-corpoduction on the Rwandan genocide, "Shooting Dogs". It's the second time I saw it through, I helped my sis translate some of it because I couldn't do the whole thing (no time)... It still made me as sick as it did the first time.

Very good. I think your mode said it best: Touched

Thank you for relaying the cartoon. I see it on occassion - reminds me a bit of Berk Breathed's "Outland"

Very solid message.

CONGRATS ON GIVING BIRTH! I hope you're doing well, recouperating nicely, and ready to party hardy, now that the restrictions are lifted!
