The sun is shining

Another dove of peace painted on the apartheid wall. This one is bound and blindfolded, it cannot even attempt to fly.  A powerful symbol.

The poet Chaim Nahman Bialik makes the point, in what is almost a Jewish haiku:
"The sun is shining
The acacia is blooming
And the slaughterer is still slaughtering."
