IMAGINE HOW THE LIFE WOULD BE AS A REFUGEE (IMMIGRANT) IN SARAJEVO
Are you happy now? Are you happy with everything you have right now? Are you happy with your comfortable bed and your warm room? Are you happy with your smartphone and those new shoes you bought few days ago? If not, imagine this – you lose it all. You lose your house, you lose your money, you lose everything. You go to another country – you don’t want to, but you have to. You come to this country that you didn’t even know exists or you just heard of it once or twice. You see the sign that says „Welcome to Sarajevo“ and that’s where your new life begins. You walk down the streets and people look at you like you are a freak. You get on the tram and people start putting their phones into their pockets or bags. They are scared, but is there a reason for them to be? You try to communicate, to ask where can you find something you need but all people do is ignore you. Is it the fear again? Do you really look like a monster? You shake it off, it’s not a big deal. Or is it? You sleep outside because you don’t have your house, it’s destroyed and miles away from you. You think about the good times in your hometown and cry yourself to sleep. When you wake up it’s another day and another battle. Okay, are you still with me? Yes? Good, because now you do all of this again and again, and again, and again… You hear people talking something in language that you don’t understand but you still know it’s about you. It’s 100% about you because you feel their eyes on you. Eventually they will pick a fight with you if they are brave enough. Life is cruel for some people, right? You didn’t ask to be a refugee, you dont adore this lifestyle but you live it. You maybe start doing some terrible stuff like mugging and fighting people but I asure you that this is not what you want… So, I’m asking you again – are you happy now? Are you happy with everything you have right now? Are you happy with your comfortable bed and your warm room? Are you happy with your smartphone and those new shoes you bought few days ago? Are you? I think you should be.
