although i don't practice what i learned in my bachelor degree, (coz now i do interior furnishing)
i always monitor social problems via media and my own observation. i wish i was a curator or an activist or a lecturer so i can teach students about the society they live in .

today i watched a startling documentary by my favorite journalist Christian Amanpour about genocide, its appalling that politics and economics gets in the way of action. they scream bloody murder and they were ignored, shunned and said it was someone else problem. the holocaust, Cambodia, Iraq, Rwanda and lastly Darfur are examples of genocide. before 1944, no one had even a term for this crime.It is a very specific term, referring to violent crimes committed against groups with the intent to destroy the existence of the group. major superpower don't want to even admit it as an act of genocide as the Geneva convention compels them to act.

i am still traumatize by the images but my trauma is nothing compared to those who suffer from this hennas crime. how can we let this act keep repeating in history. Man never learn until its too late. the sad part is the killing of innocent civilians, man, woman and children. Lets raise awareness of this crime so that the UN security council will act.
