The Bryce Commitee's Report was printed in the New York Times on May 12, 1915 and contained three pages of unbelievable eyewitness accounts from World War I. American artist George Bellows, like many others before him, put many of these descriptions to image in his 1918 "War Series."

BBC News published a story today, "DR Congo: Voices of Violence." These are accounts of people living, fleeing and in terror of the human-to-human atrocities occurring about them. (Story located : http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7045773.stm )

Mistakes are to be made once and remedied forever. Instead, we seem caught in this wheel of ever present violence. There will always be war, and perhaps it is the fate of artists to forever chart it. I do not know.
