Hi Friends,


Last night, I was surfing the Internet and I found a video about a girl murdered in Iraq. It was quite horrible, 'cause I didn't know people could be so evil, especially in those countries. The people killed the girl because she fell in love with a Muslim (the girl was kurdish) boy, but her family wasn't all right with that relationship. Later, in front of 2,000 people, (men from) her family (and other men, possibly friends of the family,) started to stoned her to death. What happened in the video was horrible. I can't understand it. Why do people do such things? Here in the post I (have) included the links to the videos made by a person from his cell phone at the moment of the murder.

I'm sorry I don't want to watch that video. Between Il divo video and this one, I'd rather much better the first one. I know there is evil in people's heart, don't need another confirmation. What are you surprised about? Sure, this wasn't the only violent death in Iraq that day.

CrOtALiTo.....

Como vez, es mejor hacer correcciones que tratar de comprender lo que pasó en el video.

Lo que pasó en el video es horrible! Le doy gracias a Dios que vivo donde vivo y que no me tengo que preocupar por esas cosas. No hay país perfecto ni gobierno perfecto pero si tendría que escoger, me quedo donde estoy.

Nadie puede cambiar al mundo y el buscar la respuesta al ¿porqué? solo te llevará al mundo de otros ¿porqués? Uno solo puede cambiar a uno mismo. Vive tu vida bien. Trata a las personas como a tí te gustaría que te trataran y ofrecele una sonrisa a las personas que te encuentras en la calle. Si todos lo hicieramos, qué mundo tan diferente sería!

Well said, Elaina.

Insisto que la vida es bella, pero muy bella, pase lo que pase. Y no hay que entender todo lo que pase en nuestro alrededores, pero sí que podemos disfrutar de las cosas bueno que nos pasa y aprender de otros que quizá no sean tan buenos, así, mejoramos como personas y tendríamos un mundo aún mejor...

Hey, Jane, your Spanish is great. Good for the subjunctive!
By the way, I think it's OK if you like to be pleasured by life. But even better if you try to change things.

Who would have guessed...?
I agree with what you say about change, I also believe that change should start from within.

courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

Oh, no, Jane, we're not talking about the same things. I didn't say anything about God nor about to begin changing my inside, which doesn't make any sense to me.
I said to change things. Real things.
And I really don't mind what a theologian can say about this. We have different interests.
BTW, your intentions are great, but I don't think praying will be enough.

Alfonso, we´re all entitiled to our opinions and it doesn´t necessarily have to make sense to you...
I was only sharing. You may or may not agree with it.

I didn´t say anything about you changing your inside, I think you´re great the way you are, at least for now...
