Sanctuary of Tears refers to the violence that humanity persists to undertake and the false power behind it. Countless lives are taken every second in every corner of the globe, whether it is for political unrest, robberies and assaults, mass shootings or domestic violence. There is an endless suffering around the world and there are too many uncounted tears shed by those who have lost their loved ones. But even though the powerless remain the eternal victims, there is hope that the younger generations will fight a way to make humanity get rid of the reigning brutality of our times.
