Čiste namjere / Pure Intent

One day the misery will be defeated....and we will be the parents of many children of many races


a dose of pure intent from BB

My reasoning for the link to this article is simple. It's courageous. It's rational. It's honest. BUT....more to the point....it has pure intent.

There are many things I appreciate about Bojan Bajic. He is a true democrat. I may not always agree with him...but I will always get a fair, rational, objective and non-aggressive argument from him. And he will listen. He is willing to listen and learn. To me the sign of a great leader.

 Whether or not you share his view...I truly wish more people shared his values. His intent is to communicate. His intent is to create a Bosnia and Hercegovina that really works for everyone in it. Not an easy task if you think about....in fact, many would call it mission impossible. He believes in it though. And his sometimes painful insight into others perspectives could be a valuable tool we all could learn from.

For things to work here you have to understand all sides of the coin. Heads or tails just won't do.

What is cista namjera
Although i have become an honorary balkanite, one thing that truly bothers me is how distrustful we are of each other and how quick we are to criticize without necessarily knowing all the facts. I will certainly criticize...and rant & rave about the environment and other things that get ispod moj koze. But i promise to do it with the pure intent. No lies. No bull shit. And entirely open to criticism.

about me
I am a semi-nomadic global activist...bosnaphile, ecologist, hiker, writer, new yorker/sarajevan. Bosnia and Herzegovina has been my home after i hitchhiked from Germany to BiH on Christmas day 1992. People always ask me what was the hardest thing about coming to Bosnia during those times. My answer is always the same...'leaving!'

What about you?
This blog isn't about me. It's about us. I'd love to hear from you...your comments, complaints, suggestions, passions, fears, whatever. What I'd rather not have is a stupid nationalistic exchange on who did what, when. I'm not interested in finger pointing but constructive dialog. If you happen to be one of those negativci...leave your negative energy somewhere else please. Hvala.

I have already received comments from some of you asking me to write or comment on certain issues. That, in fact, is what this is all about. I welcome requests to write about certain topics...and if i can, i surely will. Feel free to ask me to address specific topics.
