Frontline Journal - Thinking out loud...
First of all, let me just say now that I am kind of, sort of, getting the idea behind our next assignment, I am really looking forward to reading your frontline journals! It would be up-close and personal in a way that I've wished for media to be for so many years!
I'm a little relieved that our frontline journals will be in first person, yet I am worried that I may be too general with it. I'm trying to find one specific angle to work with. Here's an idea that came to mind:
What worries me a lot is that even among my friends, I see pure hatred around me of ''the other''. It is a very thin line between ''your rights''/''fighting for your rights'' versus ''accepting the other.'' In a land of injustice, how can you accept those whose houses have been destroyed not to hate the occupier? A lot of people ask me that question.
These are some thoughts in mind. Do you think it's worth delving into? Is this something you would want to read about? Or would I be circling around myself and should I think of something else?
Let me know...
