War and present day

This must be one of the saddest times in history. To see Russia and Vladimir Putin invade Ukraine is like watching a movie. This cannot be real, it must all be CGI yet, it is not. Who would have thought that we would be discussing the war at the dinner table in the middle of a pandemic? The thought of war and the present day do not seem to fit and yet here we are.

It feels surreal that we as supposedly civilized human beings of this planet are capable of such atrocities. All this and for what? The greed and ego of people? This type of pissing match, irrational behaviour and thinking or lack of thinking must stop. The sheer number of human lives lost in past wars is unthinkable. Now in 2022, the most advanced people in the known universe are going to war once more. What kind of stupidity is this?!

Does anyone not think how idiotic the human race is. Are we not able to stop this from happening? I don’t mean the war, I mean the precursor to the war. The signs before a single life is to be lost. Surely there must have been a way to stop this. But as usual, some people will be rubbing their hands together in hopes of war so they may profit from it.

That thought alone makes me sick. To think that many people will benefit from the bloodshed in Ukraine. Some people are going to make money over the lives lost. Why else would this not be stopped? The whole world, billions of people are watching this play out before our very eyes. It is a tear-jerking moment when kids and adults alike are running away and seeking shelter. How does a parent explain such things to a child?

Watching this all play out should start a movement for all of us to be better humans, and bring humanity back. In the end, nothing will be lost or gained but the lives of innocent men, women and children. The world will not be a better place, the future will not be brighter. So we need to ask the question… Why?

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
