And, for info. on one major event that we can never forget, the anti-Tamil progroms of Black July - July of 1983 (by conservative estimates 1,000 - 3,000 Tamils killed by Sinhala mobs while the then government stood aside for several days. the government has changed for the better in recent years), events that can't be allowed to happen again, go here.
Looking forward to the war being over. Once that horror is out of the way, Sri Lankans can focus on fully recovering from colonialism (the hard religious & ethnic divisions that brought the war into being is partially a result of colonialism & also of course due to greedy & evil Sri Lankans manipulating their fellow citizens into f***ed up situations. sri lanka gained freedom from the british in 1948). The island has a long history of civilization (over 2,500 years, with a written "history"/tales of epic accounts covering key events from much of that period - the Mahavansa and the Dipavamsa) and great natural resources - of which the people are possibly one of the most valuable.
