All our tiny problems seem so irrelevant when reading the latest +Amnesty International
report entitled "Escape from Hell". It's telling the stories of young Yezidi girls who are being abused by IS members. Page 8 just drove me nuts...
“The man who was holding us said that either we marry him and his brother or he would sell us. At night we tried to strangle ourselves with our scarves. We tied the scarves around our necks and pulled away from each other as hard as we could, until I fainted. Two girls who were held with us woke up and stopped us and then stayed awake to watch over us. When they fell asleep at 5am we tried again, and again they woke up and stopped us. I could not speak for several days after that.”
If there's one wish for #2015, it's that human mankind will focus on fixing those unbearable situations instead of playing stupid political games.
