[RV]

The genocide and terror that occured in Bosnia & Herzogovina shocked me to the bone. I could not believe that this sort of barbaric mass murder was taking place in Europe, fifty years after the collective shout of "Never Again."

The war in Bosnia was the first major conflict in which the Internet began to play a huge role. While snipers fired at the people of Sarajevo and Mostar and Foca and other "save zones" for five years, concerned individuals around the globe were emailing their support and concern and heartfelt sorrow. I was one of those concerned people and that war changed my life forever.
(Nalini Lasiewicz)
Each day I read the news
And watch as nations explode.
My heart sinks and skips a beat
when I hear what the People are told.

CHORUS
Lies.....Surrounding me tonight.....
Blinking from a screen,
Twisting the minds of all those
who don't know that they're lies.
Purposefully told.
To ruin the chances for Peace
to take hold in the lives of all People.

Some friends don't understand
Why this is haunting my dreams.
A century of war and the ghosts that remain
Have taught me, what my freedom means.

Years pass -- headlines fade
Still the damage of war marches on.
Follow the money and you will find
the People behind all those lies…...
