There’s no place like

“A Kurdish marksman surveys the devastation of Kobani, Syria, on Jan. 30, days after Kurdish forces recaptured the city from ISIS.” – Time magazine

Silly joke aside, how does one react to having one’s home utterly destroyed. What is the point of capturing this shell of a city after ISIS has destroyed all essence of human life in it. While a victory, it’s more a symbolic one from the humanist point of view.

Hopefully the people will come back, and it’ll flower under the Arabian sun once again. If not, then I wish the families the best of luck.
