Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the massacre of 250 civilian people from Mt Vlasic in Prijedor, Bosna-Hercegovina.
Last year the families of the victims gathered at Mt Vlasic and commemorated their beloved ones, this year they won’t be able to do it at this site because the minister of local government of Serb Republic, Lejla Rešić, without explanation restricted the funds from the ‘Fund for the Association of Civil Victims of War’, which previously was used for organizing the transportation of family members, and the Municipal Assembly of Prijedor, decided on June 2012, to deny any possibility of local budgets to be collected to these funds, but in the previous years they were only able to commemorate the victims at this site with those funds (x)
Imagine that - those who committed genocide against your people now in charge of more than half of your country, they deny you the right to remember and commemorate, they deny the genocide itself, most don’t even go to prison for what they’ve done, and those who do are out after 10-15 years. On top of all this many genocide survivors who live in Bosanska Krajina live side by side with those who killed their familes and held them/their families in concentration camps. Even diaspora that have fled the country and live in the US for instance meet the same criminals that they fled from.
Imagine that. Bosniaks live with this every day.
I can’t believe I saw this with my own two eyes today during the march for Palestine. A Palestinian BDS flag unfurled from the Manhattan bridge, this is seriously amazing. These are not my photos and they’re being reposted by everyone on fb so idk who to give credit for =/

Such a simple question
warrants a simple answer,
but I will not lie to you.
The weight of my heavy mind
drags me down to depths
I did not know my feet
could touch, and the gravel
feels unbearably rough.
The jumbled mess of wires
I once called thoughts
is enough to tangle anyone
and leave them beyond
overwhelmed. No, don’t
ask me what’s on my mind,
for I could not begin to tell you.
I’m still figuring it out myself.
"Beauty is not important, you have to be interesting, someone who is different to other people. Otherwise you just turn up and look beautiful, and there’s nothing more to you. I have never been beautiful. I’ve never been a beautiful doll. In fact when I started, people didn’t want to hire me because I wasn’t photogenic. People thought my mouth was too big, they wanted me to make my nose shorter, to have straighter teeth. It would have been too hard. I said, well I’ll go back home to Pozzuoli then, I don’t want to change my face. Then I suffered a lot because people said that I wasn’t photogenic at all. In the film industry, if you’re not photogenic it means you can’t became an actress or actor. But things have got better and better thanks to photographers and others, who know how to portray my face better on the screen. I didn’t change my face at all, they just got better at it." - Sophia Loren x

I have always been more of an Elizabeth Taylor and Sofia Loren inspired girl. Not really into Audrey or Marilyn. *shrugs*
You might pretend that her songs are so yesterday, but it’s time to come clean: the girl can rock. Hey now, our lips are sealed.
This brought me so much happiness. I love her as much as i love shakira damn.
