Day 1,951, 07:41 Published in Serbia Serbia by The Milliner


Hi, world!

It is an important day for me today, so I wanted to tell you about it, if you would care to listen to me. I won't be bothering you for too long. I'll be as short as I can, in fact.

I'm a little no-name, so you can call me that. No-name. I am thirteen years old. Thirteen and a bit more, in fact. I should be celebrating my fourteenth birthday in about nine months - by the end of this year. I'm not going to, however. Well, not the way you all do it, at least.

You see, my Mommy and Daddy have always loved each other much, much, much. Fourteen years ago, some time before this day of year, their love became so strong, that they decided to create something that would be theirs to cherish, to pour their mutual love into this creation. So they decided to give birth to a child - to me.

Now, maybe you don't know what this magical word means - "birth"... You see, when Mommy and Daddy love each other as much, they send a letter to Storks. One of them comes, and Mommy and Daddy tell it that they want a baby. Then the Stork flies far, far away, to bring the baby to Mommy and Daddy. And it is so far away that the Stork returns only after whole nine months! And the baby is wrapped in a white sheet, and the Stork takes it with its beak, and flies back. And when the baby is brought to Mommy and Daddy, they are so merry, and they kiss the baby on the cheek and they love each other even more. And that's what birth means.

So my Mommy and Daddy wrote a letter to the Storks. And a Stork came, and flew away and promised to be back with me in nine months.

But, you know, it never did... As it flew high in the sky in a hurry, to bring me to Mommy and Daddy as soon as can be, on this day, fourteen years ago, it flew straight into a dark, scary angel, called Merciful Angel.

Maybe you don't know what "merciful" means, either. Neither do I, but I think it means that someone doesn't like babies and stops the Storks from bringing them to Mommy and Daddy. Because, this scary angel made my Stork vanish. He also did that to my Mommy and Daddy. And I could hear it laughing from far, far away, where I waited for my Stork that never came. And it was an evil laugh. You know how scary it sounds when the lightning strikes? That is just the way it sounded. And it echoed with many, many screams and crying. And this Merciful Angel thought and still thinks that it prevented me from reaching my Mommy and Daddy. But... Hey... Come closer. I need to whisper something in your ear. Don't tell it: the evil angel does not know that even if it stopped me from coming to my Mommy and Daddy, it sent them to me, instead. And we are together. With all the other children whose Storks never came. And we are preparing for my fourteenth birthday already.

Thank you for listening to me. I am doing great, I am happy. I just wanted you to remember me. Me, and my Mommy, and my Daddy. And all my little friends. May your own angels watch over you, and keep you safe from the harm the evil Merciful Angel brings. Farewell! I love you all!








Edit: For those of you who don't understand the text and are not familiar with the term "Merciful Angel" - fourteen years ago, in 1999, NATO alliance ran a bombing operation codenamed "Noble Anvil" or "Allied Force", unofficially named "Merciful Angel", that started on 24th of March. The target - my country. The operation was deemed controversial in many ways, but I won't elaborate further, since flaming is definitely not my intention. It's just that this is an important day to us here, we want to honor those who perished and to remember them on this day. That's all. Before you click that report button, remember that all of you have your own 24th of March, be it September 11th, or some other date. Thanks.

Edit2: Since one of the readers asked what country did this operation take place in - it was in former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, comprising present-day Serbia and Montenegro.

Bedno je, kao i uvek, što ljudi masovno šire vesti o učlanjenju u "ePolitičke" partije umesto da obrate pažnju na ovakve stvari. Nažalost, naša realnost, preslikana kroz (bednu) igricu-u-pregledaču, ponovo nas poražava...

Da vam ne odgovaram svima, da vas spamujem bez razloga... Hvala vam svima, razgalili ste mi srce. Lepo je videti da ima tog našeg (ja ću reći nacionalnog, srpskog - volim ovu zemlju, šta da radim, a vi ga nazovite kako god želite) duha u nama još uvek... Hvala što se sećate, što ne zaboravljate. Oprostite im... Zbog toga ste vi veliki, a oni mali kao bakterije. I moram sad malo da patetišem - što volim kad ste mi složni, šta god da je razlog... o/

Nemojte se svađati međusobno, to vas molim nebitni ja. Posebno ako se trolujete. : ) Čovek je samo aludirao na neku kosmičku silu, nazovi je kako kog želiš, koja održava balans. Nije spominjao da je "osveta naša". Osveta je Njegova. Ili kakve god sile, da ne namećem svoje stavove. ; )

As I wrote below,

To all you English speaking readers - thanks for your attention, sincerely. Just in case the term Merciful Angel is unknown to you, this is the name of military operation NATO undertook against my country fourteen years ago. The operation was deemed controversial in many ways. Hope that makes the metaphor easier to get. Stay safe. Regards.

I mustn't be more elaborate, they'll regard it as flaming.

You really are a gifted writer The Milliner. It's a beautifully written allegory, very poignant. I sincerely believe that there will be justice, if not in this life, then in the next. And in the next, even Merciful Angels will have to face His judgement.

Lots of prayers to safely take all of you beyond the sadness, the memories.
