One thing I can say for sure is that you have experienced pain, and I am sincerely sorry; no pun intended.

As for me, I grew up in a war zone. I was born in Iran and went through the entire 8-year of Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988.) I have lost a brother in the front lines. And, I KNOW what it EXACTLY means to get people excited to run to the minefields; have lost teenage friends to that.

Now, they weren’t superheroes. Hell, they weren’t even adults yet. But, and this is a very important BUT, it is because of their actions, and sacrifices that I am alive to tell their tail.

Not every war is about the leaders profiting, and not every war worth writing about!
