Unintentional War Blogging
One of the blogs I read several times a week is Melly’s blog called All Kinds of Writing. The author writes about all kinds of things including life, the art of writing and the business of writing.
Melly lives with her husband in Toronto, Canada, but many of her family live in a war zone. They are right in the thick of it in Haifa, northern Israel. She recently decided that she needed to be with her family in these troubled times, so she flew to Israel.
She has continued to write her blog – with bombs falling all around her. And when the bombs stop, she has the courage to take photos of their impact on everyday life. She has posted a number of these photos already. Her writing gives the reader a graphic idea of what it is like to have a war in your face and personal, and how it affects the ordinary people and the everyday problems it causes.
