War, loss, Famine

Two Angels sat in the heavenly body, they looked to the future.They saw a dark cloud over Africa. 

Beyond the cloud, they saw the many lives lost in conflict.

Africa, her face was red with anger.

One Angel turned to the other asking, how can 
one man hate another so? All mankind is created in the image of our Father. All mankind is created equal.

The Angels, they wept for Africa.

Then the Angels looked again, their faces were torn into reflections of terror and their bodies of pain. 
From their eyes appeared tears of blood as they wept for the world.

Thank you for the kind comments

.Linden - I'm sure the Angels weep, every time a child cries with hunger.
