Dreams of Blue Sky
As I'm sure most of you have heard, Colleen Graffy, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy for the USA, has labelled the suicides of three Guantanamo Bay prisoners as 'publicity stunts'.
Well, if they were, then you better be listening up you dumb f*cker.
I don't get it; I really don't. These three people - because they are PEOPLE, HUMANS, damnit - these three have suffered so much that they decided to end their own lives. Jesus. They decided to KILL THEMSELVES. How can someone just dismiss this as if it was just some PR move? How?
This is why I have chosen to take Law next year at university, instead of Archaeology. I want to study something that could help in the future, instead of just looking back into the past. My parents want me to take commercial law, since it is relatively easy to earn money if you practice in that area - but I'm going to opt for International Law instead, which covers issues like human rights and such. I've read that there is a shortage of lawyers qualified and willing to help prisoners of war, worldwide, and in other international aid agencies.
I don't know.....people say that the teenage years are when we think and act naively, when we have wild, unrealistic dreams. Money is and will be an issue, I know, but right now my goal is to work for the UN some time in my career. And really, I'd rather be naive and unrealistic than sit there and rot and earn money but never know if I could have helped.
