DISCLAIMER: A text post where I do not talk about what I am wearing.
I'd say a month or so ago I went to my friends house and we caught up on all the razzle dazzle of uni. Blake and I started talking about one of his essays in particular which was the war that is currently going on within Syria. This lead to that and before you knew it we were hooked into watching one of the vice documentaries on Syria. The jist of it or what I was able to gather was that the Syrian government wants more power the driving force behind the ego and is ordering soldiers to kill their own civilians without consequence, empathy or mercy. A revolution/rebellion however is occurring within Syria amongst the people as they are unable to leave the country without the threat of being assassinated. Bombings after bombings are aimed at hospitals as "it's better to kill on doctor than 1000 fighters". The helpers are so selfless attending to the injured risking their own lives in the process of saving as many innocent peoples lives as they can. The documentary is incredibly graphic I often found myself looking away or squirming in my chair. We also stopped the video and just shook our heads completely speechless at the sheer velocity of it all. This is the outcome of the destructive force of one ego controlling a collective bunch of egos. How can this be occurring in this day and age? Yet the Syrian people still have hope which is an inspiring quality.
Yet here I am involving myself in the vanity of a fashion blog or even complaining about the littlest of things. I'm making a vow to myself to become more conscious and if I make a negative comment to justify it with something positive. I had no idea about the war in Syria and it made me feel quite helpless because all that I can do is sit here and write about it but I am now aware and hope I made whoever actually reads this aware as well. If I have created some awareness then I'm counting that as a positive thing indeed.
