All set for a new life


These two kids waited at the gimnazium for a ride to who knows where. In America I've seen Bosnian refugees in terrifying ghettos and in posh ski resorts. They are certainly spread out all over the world. In Bistrica, a neighborhood in Gornji Vakuf that had just been cleansed of Croats, a Bosnian soldier about 18 approached me and asked "which way is America?" I pointed in the approximate direction. "I just figured out there's no reason to stay here any longer," he said. Then he set out in the direction I had pointed.
