Sri Lanka: Numbers and Deaths

Cynically Yours on numbers and dead soldiers. “I'd love to be able to say that when I hear 5 soldiers are dead I feel sad, but I don't. All my life I have heard about soldiers dying. After the first few years it just stopped affecting me. If it is a big number I would take a minute to pause and give it some thought but it was a long time ago that I stopped remembering the fact that every soldier is another person.”
