Humans, what a fantastic race we were; whenever in history we were given a chance to show our violent nature, we discovered ways to exacerbate it by performing nerve, making us nothing but pompous barbarous jargon. The multitude of antipathy we showed, the verbal castigation we performed, and the deception we did, are the few examples that contrite the essence of humanity.
3 Times When Humanity Terrified the Devil
We have reached a stage where we have challenged the devil himself to ponder what is worse, the tricks he performs on us or the challenges humans give him every time they get a chance. Not every one of us is terrible, most of us are good inherently, but it’s the trick of the disingenuous people that sometimes blindly makes us fall into their pit, which in turn raises a problem as to whether we need the devil or we have become self-sufficient; as for now we are just becoming aberrant day by day with insidious thoughts that are draining our mind.
The sky was cheerful in color, birds had disappeared, and the ground was shaking as it had never been before; the grating sound from the sirens became unnerving, people were running in the streets yelling nonsensical sentences, and then all hell broke loose. The sanguine sky had started raining, and it was with nothing but fire; a loud noise seemed to be coming from a distance as people ran to save their lives.
Within split seconds, humanity had reached a new low, for it was none other than the Small Boy, the American’s nuclear weapon, which had arrived. The city of Hiroshima had become a Graveyard where a million people were buried along with the remnants of humankind. Buildings were razed to the ground; lay people’s bodies burnt to a crisp in the ashes of the ground; we could hear intermittently loud screeching or a sharp cry.
Crying in the corner was a shabby figure people did not recognize, humanity.
We clutched each other’s hands tightly and promised that we would never let them go while they pushed us inside the building. Suddenly it became very dark; many other people were also there. We could swear we heard a baby cry; a strange man was laughing unstoppably and blatantly babbling ingenuous remarks, and suddenly, it was completely dark.
Out of nowhere, the sprinklers installed on the ceiling started working, and within no time, we were drenched in a slimy fluid. Each of us was so scared that we could barely speak; there was complete silence. Finally, after an hour of torment, we could hear some activity, it was difficult to breathe, and then it started.
A strange gas was leaking into our chamber. My Jew husband took me in his arm, and we caressed each other for one last time as we knew what it was, and then slowly, our bodies fell.
It was a regular day at Auschwitz, where Jews were gassed and killed by hydrogen cyanide. Total casualties were around 5.4 million, courtesy of the devil that roamed on earth, Adolf Hitler.
What a tiring day it was. As I walked timidly towards my house after having a long day, I earned to see my husband. As I walked down a deserted street, I swear I heard footsteps. I started walking faster, but the footsteps were closing in. I was scared, so I started running to my house.
A hand clutched my neck out of nowhere, and suddenly I was on the ground. The impact of falling had already taken a toll on my right hand. Three monstrous figures roamed around me with nothing else than lust in their eyes.
I remember being so scared that I was not able to say anything. I started crying unstoppably when one of the monsters put his hand over my shoulder. I could still remember the smell of the whiskey that reeked from his mouth, and then suddenly, it struck me that they were no one else than my colleagues.
I begged them so hard to stop, but they kept laughing. I think I almost passed out in shock when I heard my husband’s voice running toward me; those were the only voices I wanted to hear. The monsters took flight immediately. I clearly remember when my husband saved me from those wolves, as I had survived a tragedy of a lifetime, rape. How can you still believe in humanity?
The scenes mentioned above are nothing but times when humanity was ashamed to the extent that irreparable damage was done. The genocide in the name of peace, massacres for the hatred against an ethnicity, and the unlawful submission of people for fulfilling the carnal desires are nothing but the fiends of humanity. Not even the devil would have dared to perform such atrocities these humans do.
“Our continued lassitude should not become the reason for our downfall, and our action should not become a lesson for the devil.”
