… and cannot, unfortunately, be different ….
I’m trying to ignore for a moment, my dear professor, all the nonsense with which is heavily encrusted this country. Hatred, envy, the jealousy, apartheid, the eccentricities, the ignorance, and all that mediocrity that splashed us on a daily basis pushing the local righteous acts towards the focus of the end.
I am trying for a moment to ignore the smuggling, drugs, trafficking, tax evasion, rape, suicide, traffic accidents, and all of that mediocrity that lineup on the pedestal of superiority the ignorant of the spirit who calls themselves a guiding star of our destiny.
I am trying for a moment to ignore the division of sports, education, culture and people as well as all that mediocrity which brings forth some new personalities whom are trying to establish some new truths, black and white ones.
I am trying for a moment to ignore piracy in all its forms, inflation of books and inflation of “writers” whom everyday shed us with their “historical” works, in the same time knowing that their descendant will not be able to find their footprints, and all that mediocrity which established a multitude of options for the negation of quality creations that has an assumption of cultural development of society.
I am trying for a moment to ignore the incompetence of doctors, engineers, journalists and others while receiving diplomas in hand by its, postwar crowned schools. For God’s sake, we have to learn and what to learn?…That is not important … it is important to learn, learn, and I try to ignore all mediocrity that brings forth top professionals who crib master’s theses, doctoral dissertations and scholarly works, and in the same time not even for any moment blinked of sickness because of that.
I am trying for a moment to ignore the fact that each country has its mafia while here some new “mafia” has its own state, and all that mediocrity that does not allow creativity of individuals who are seeking towards general, joint goal and who would like to shape up the common goal of a society.
I’m trying to ignore for a moment that I am Bosnian (Muslim), Croat (Catholic) and / or Serb (Orthodox) “on battery” as well as all that mediocrity that put the name and surname prior to knowledge and skills.
But I do not manage to ignore the most important thing which is “the prerequisite-condition sine qua non” for the above specified.
What do you think, my dear professor, what is that?
The answer is simple, really, is simple:
1. Until all the nations / people / citizens / women / children / elderly / young / of these areas do understand that the other and different is not here to be “slaughtered, killed and burned,” there is no prosperity here.
2. Until all the nations / people / citizens / women / children / elderly / young people of these areas do not understand that being able to see the mote in someone else’s and not see a chump in his own eye is not an advantage but flaws, there is no prosperity here.
3. Until all the national/ people / citizens / women / children / elderly / young people of this areas do not understand that state/country means responsibility, faith, love, honesty, knowledge and coexistence, there is no prosperity here.
And when it’s to be expected; not before 2114. For a hundred years from now. Because we then will not exist. And we did not deserve better. Now, am I right, my dear professor.
Awakening, he answered: “My dear student – instead of the story, check only this, please: http://www.cin.ba/en/ and everything will, in a simple way, be told to you – green, red and blue ones are stealing. Mostly from their “own” green, red and blue ones. While this continues to vote for them. There’s something masochistic in the voices (sorry, voting) of the local people.”
