Waves in the Sky (by jessekline)
“No other conflict took so much out of me emotionally and physically. In the beginning of the break up of Yugoslavia back in the summer of 1991, all sides were approachable—Bosnians, Croats and Serbs alike. It became hard to fathom why a group of people, who grew up as children together, with Bosnians, Croats and Serbs even marrying each other—how could they now allow politicians to drive such a nationalistic, ethnic web between them, causing a blind nationalism that swept through village after village? Extreme hatred, led by idiots.
By the time I left in 1996, I had to run away never wanting to look back. For, I felt, I had just witnessed mankind at its worst, something that even today still affects me, how simply mankind can be led astray from moral behavior, with politicians and media that can use hate laced with patriotism to drive their wicked agendas.” - Christopher Morris, photographer
