This week’s activity was very impressive. The video called “We Are All Neighbors”, from personal perspective, is more like a tragic than a happy story. In the beginning, the video presented us two distinctive religion groups lived together, which were Muslims and Catholics. It’s not hard to see that they coexisted and helped each other out, which is, I believe, most of us wish to see. However, as the war took place, this situation turned down sharply. First, men joined the war and left their hometown, so women remained there had to take over men’s job and took care of their families. As the two groups were getting along with each other while in the past, they tend to look after other families. A series of hard work made the women appeared to be lazy and tired in their leisure times. As they began to make choices to decrease their work, the separation between the Muslim and Catholics tend to be obvious and irreversible. As a result, the relationship between two religious groups broke up and were cut off.
Base on what I think, this video presented me the cruelness and inhuman of what war bring upon citizens, war breaks up good relationships between families and sacrifice the happiness and bright future of families, in exchange of a victory. Such awful things must be stopped and prohibited in order to build a peace environment for all of us to live in. And since two different kinds of religious groups were shown in the video, I say all religions around the world should unite together and live peacefully with each other while insisting their own believes, instead of creating conflicts and having battle with others.
