WAR CAN BE LED BY A PEN - BORBA 2017
N. 1 11-12-2018
Boško Brkić and Admira Ismić were holding eachother by hand while they walked on the right side of the Miljacka, they had hope for a life with no war, she waved her backpack and hopped. Then they first hit him, and right after Admira, who hugged his loved one for the last time while they died together. They layed hugged 7 days, then the army of the Republika Srpska picked the couple up to bury them together. Boško and Admira have always been inseparable for 8 years, causing attention wherever they were in Sarajevo: not even a bullet had separated them. They already planned a marriage and a life together even before the start of the war, then the war started but that didn't stop the couple, they got agreements with both the armies; Sarajevo's Romeo and Juliet had to walk their last kilometer to freedom, but someone didn't like that it was possible for two people from different religions to hold eachothers hands not being afraid of death. They didn't just want to kill two lovers, but the idea behind them that pierced any border.
