For days I was thinking about the invisible lines between journalism and activism. Journalism involves the telling of truth and stories. Activism involves fighting for a cause one believes to be right and true. What if the story someone is reporting on has a loud cause crying to be fought for?

He was a year younger than me, I note immediately. That's so very young, I say to myself. It saddens me because I enjoyed his work, all the way from his television days in the early 1980s to his recent, sporadic appearances on the big screen.

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Every year we commemorate the genocide, we expect that those who betrayed Srebrenica might this time ask for forgiveness from the survivors.

Today Kosova is free. It is, however, a flawed state with serious problems. Every UN Member State should recognize Kosova's independence, but only 106 have recognized it so far. Now is the time for Kosovars to vote and express their determination for reform.
