Srebrenica was the biggest act of genocide – on Europe soil which shamed not only Europebut the world for that matter. This year marks 21 years since the #Srebrenica genocide in Bosnia. The 8,372 victims of genocide – especially the young – represent a lost generation who never had the opportunity to fulfill their opportunity.
It’s 21 years of permanent pain
21 years of searching for answers
21 years of gathering the pieces
21 years and this story is not yet over
21 years of identifying bodies
21 years of burying bodies
21 years of missing bodies
21 years of mourning
21 years of seeking justice
21 years of fighting prejudice
21 years of tackling hatred
21 years of remembrance
21 years of despite all the odd
They are standing strong
They are defeating hate with love
They are the survivors
A nation united by pain.
A nation that pledge daily to heal the past so their people and generations can have a present and a future filled with peace and harmony.
