"What I saw in war" by Janine di Giovanni


An incretible testimony by an incredible war reporter, Janine di Giovanni who confirms what we arleady knewabout our [meta]modern "civilized","democratic"world;that in the middle of Europe, in the middle of the 21st century, wars are still going on and people do not believe they are coming. “In Bosnia and nearly every other country I've seen where war comes, people don't want to believe it's coming. … They don't leave before they can. They don't get their money out. They stay because you want to stay in your home.” Though Janine di Giovanni through her 11 minute TED talk and the sharing of her experiences in Rwanda, in Iraq, in Syria, Libanon etc. she points out the real purpose and intention that every journalist should have, “my role [as a war correspondent] is to bring lvoice to people who are voiceless [and] to shine a light in the darkest corners of the world.” A journalist can neither stop a war nor to start a new one through the handling of the information, though he/she can report about all these incredible people who are fighting for democracy and for all these things tha the rest of the world takes as granted.
