And Then You Remember...

That this is a town that was ravaged by war. That these hills rained bullets and bombs and heavy artillery. Landmines sit just under the skin of the land. Ten years later the scars are still fresh, wounds still visible. The land is being rebuilt, yes. The people go on with life, and the streets smell sweet with coffee and orange blossoms, but divisions are deep and this was a war zone. All it takes is a closer look.
