"A voice was heard in Ramah, â€¨
wailing and loud lamentation,
Rachel weeping for her children; â€¨
she refused to be consoled, â€¨
because they are no more."
Throughout history, governments have resorted to barbaric
acts of violence to remain in power.
In Christian tradition, the Gospel of Matthew reminds us of this reality
through the story of the massacre of the Holy Innocents. The history of
the Patriotic Union in Colombia is reminds us that massacres of innocents
continue 2000 years later. â€¨â€¨
