when Kosovo comes over

we just lost her, the agent we visited yesterday.  like i said, i didn't know her personally, but i would be lying if i said i wasn't affected.

we are all aware about the violence happening in our society.  we are afraid of it, but more often than not we are apathetic.  we don't really care unless and until it happens to us, we never really realize how bad it feels.  it's just like Jade's analogy - we never know how real the danger is until it happens to us.

i didn't care about this person had i not found out about her story and maybe after this, i wouldn't care again.  but for a brief moment i did and she meant something to me just like anybody else i ever cared about in my life.

sometimes, miserable things have to happen before we wake up.
