Triumphal Arches

They used to build up “triumphal arches” in order to honor the victorious war heroes on their return home, and the hero would lead their armies through the structure into their land. Nowadays, triumphal arches themselves have become the battleground of many endless wars with no winner. Victory is no longer at issue in these futile incessant wars with no purpose or conclusion while the leaders – military, political, or religious – seek every possible way to keep away from this futile chaotic scene and become the passive onlookers of the disasters they have brought about.
