"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Zlata's Diary

Zlata's Diary, a book of journal excerpts from a young Bosnian girl, was interesting and insightful. It is also the epitome of an average, privileged, and over dramatic 12-year-old girl. I'm pretty sure most girls I know were just like this, including myself, which is why it is amusing to read her journal entries.

It was an interesting read, but there are definitely more impactful pieces worth studying longer. I was young and so unaware during the Bosnian War and remember seeing news clips about it, so it was a good reminder about what happened. Do you remember the war too?
