“I have lost three my children in early 1990s. They were quite young,
and I loved them very much. When the war broke out, we fled in fear of
our safety. We had to walk for hundreds of miles. There was little food,
and I remember my children complaining about the heat and the thirst,
especially the youngest. I carried them as much as I could on my back,
but there was so much I could do. They were such happy children, always
smiling. Their smiles instilled hope, that whatever happens
if we stick together and I protect them as much as I can, things will
work out. Once we reached a safe area, we set camp and waited it out.
Unfortunately, the war followed us to our safe haven. In the midst of
the screams of the young, the shrieks of the women, the chaos, people
fleeing, I lost sight of my beautiful children. Without a trace, they
disappeared. I refused to despair and tried to look for them. I’ve
visited so many nearby villages and towns and prayed to God to help me
locate them. My wife accepted their fate but I couldn’t. The single
image of their smiles kept me going, instilled hope in me that they were
alive and well. For many decades, I kept the hope alive, but it was
until recently that I gave hope. I’ve accepted that they are in much
better place and if they’re still alive, I pray that God unites us with

“Waxaa iga lumay 3 caruura bilowgii 1990-yadii, caruur aad u yar ayey
ahaayeen, aad baan ujeclaa. Markii dagaalkii ahliga dhacay waanu soo
qaxnay, waxaanu lugaynay boqolaal mayl. Waxaanu wajahnay cunto yaraan,
weli waaan xasuusta caruurtayda oo ka cabanaya kuleelka iyo haraadka
weliba midka ugu yar. Waxaan ku qaaday dhabarkayga ilaa intii aan awoodi
karayey, laakiinse waxbadan u qaban karayey jiray, waxay ahayeen
caruur markasta faraxsan dhiila cadeeya. Farxadoodu waxay igu abaaurtay
rajo, waxkasta oo dhaca si wada-jir ah waxaan ku dedaali jiray in aan
ilaaliyo ilaa xad inta aan awoodi karo. Si wacan bey noloshu noogu
shaqaysay markii aanu soo gaarnay goob nabad ah. Waxanu degnay waanu
sugnay, nasiib darro hadana dagaalkiiba soo gaaray goobtii amaanka
ahayd isla markaana aanu joognay. Oohinta caruurta iyo qaylada dumarka,
dadkii oo is dhexyaacay hadana markale waanu qaxnay. Waan waayey aragii
caruurtaydi quruxda badnayd, waa iga lumen, waan diiday in aan ka tago,
waan isku dayey in aan raadiyo. Waxaan booqday dhamaan xafadahii u
dhawaa goobta waxaan ilaahay ka baryey inuu isoo celiyo caruurtaydi.
Xaaskaygu waa ku samirtay laakiin aniga waa igu adkaatay. Waxaan
xasuusta noloshoodi iyo farxadii ay ku jireen, waxay igu abuurtay rajo
ah in ay noolyihiin. Wakhti dheer kadib, weli rajadaydi waa noolayd,
laakiin wakhti dhowayd hada waan ka samray, waxaan aqbalay in ay joogaan
meel halkan ka wacan, hadii ay weli noolyihiin, waxaan ilaahay ka
baryayaa inuu isu kaaya soo celiyo.”
Hi!I want to read about celtic warrior women, do you know any original source or something about it? especially about celtiberian women, thanks :)
Hi anon, sorry for the late reply. Here’s a brief list of resources, but I will be doing additional research and posting historical quotes, extracts from books and other related posts. Hope this helps!
- Women of the Celts - Jean Markale
- Celtic Myth and Religion - Sharon Paice MacLeod - Wild Irish Roses: Tales of Brigits, Kathleens, and Warrior Queens - Trina Robbins

French filmmaker Adrien Selbert was 7
when the Bosnian War started in 1992, and he’s never forgotten the horrible
images he saw each night on TV. Even now, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains
politically and economically fractured, its people divided by ethnicity and
Selbert has explored these themes in
previous works. He returns to them in The Real Edges, an ongoing
series of moody vignettes. His scenes teem with contrasts. In one, a woman
relaxes with a cigarette in Markale square, where dozens of civilians died
in two bombings during the siege of Sarajevo. In another, a priest baptizes a
child in Pale, a Serbian stronghold during that same brutal siege.

I usually don’t get into K-Pop issues because it’s all so ridiculous .. but this is out of control.
You are all upset Yugyeom is “drinking” but are you serious? You aren’t complaining when Yugyeom is humping the stage right? Oh yeah, he’s not underage then. If underaged drinking is the biggest problem you have right now with the world then you seriously need to reevaluate your life. He deserves a drink. He works so hard. He is also BARELY illegal. Are you kidding, and then calling him and JB fat is DISGUSTING. He’s so tiny. People like you are what cause eating disorders.
Oh, how the tables have turned. You LOVE it when he embraces black culture. But now you mad? It’s only ok for YOU to say the N word, right? Because it’s not harmful? Why is it not harmful when YOU say it? Anyone with even an ounce of a brain would know he was “meaning it” in the same way you mean it when you say it with your friends. There is NOTHING racist about any members of GOT7. NO one should be saying the N word. If it’s so harmful then why would you say it just because you’re black? You should be the first one NOT to say it. Lead by example. YOU ultimately made it part of your culture, he just wants to embrace it. And you love that, remember?
All I have to say is it’s MARK’S body. Not yours. Are you serious? YOU HAVE NO SAY IN WHAT TATTOO HE HAS OR DOES NOT HAVE. You fans are possessive and controlling and crazy human beings. Also, Mark please get better friends because they did you fucking dirty, obvi.
GOT7 IS ONE OF THE MOST DIVERSE AND CULTURALLY ACCEPTING K-POP GROUPS OF ALL TIME. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK. YOU ALL LOOK RIDICULOUS. THEY ARE JUST HUMAN BEINGS TOO.
If you have something to say, my ask box is open. I’m a MIXED GIRL and GOT7 has made me feel nothing but LOVE.
