7 year old Safet Hrustić is a good student in his 3rd grade class in Tuzla,Bosnia and Herzegovina.
But the costs of going to school,textbooks and lunches are more than his unemployed mother can afford.
A very poor man lived with his wife. One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed. The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife. He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut. She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.
Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.
MORAL: To love is nothing, to be loved is something but to love and to be loved by the one you love,that is EVERYTHING. Never take love for granted.
The statues, designed and built by Tamara Studio in 2007, represent the main characters in one of the region’s most celebrated love stories.
The large-scale piece features a man and a woman made of metal slats. At first, the statues face each other. After a while, they begin moving closer and closer to one another. They continue moving forward until they have a brief moment of contact, but this concept of closeness is short lived, because they don’t stop when they meet. Instead, they continue on their paths until they move right through each other.
The tale, Ali and Nino, tells the story of Ali, a Muslim boy, and Nino, a Georgian princess. When they meet, the two immediately fall in love, but they’re eventually torn apart by Soviet forces. The novel was written by an author who used the pen name Kurban Said. To this day, no one knows the author’s true identity. (Source)
according to CJ Pearson (a 13 year-old conservative Republican), President Obama is just egging on the “domestic terrorist group” that is Black Lives Matter. Oh, and also cannot seem to find the name of Ahmed Mohamed because ‘Muslim kid’ is better fitting?
You know why im so pissed off about the silence when it comes to the Bosnian War and the Srebrenica Genocide in particular? Because this was the most recent genocide commited by Europeans yet no one talks about it? It’s not taught in schools (uk) it’s hardly a topic anyone cares about, it was systematically islamophobic, for those who don’t know it was a genocide targeting Muslim men and boys specifically, 8373 murdered from 11 July 1995 - 22 July 1995 to be precise. Muslim women were raped, Muslims were put in concentration camps yet this is the forgotten war and genocide? How? How can Europe just forget about this? I’m so disgusted. 21 years. 21 years of families suffering and mourning because their father, brother, uncle, grandad was killed for his faith. Fuck anyone who doesn’t care about Bosnia.
