Sunday Reads - Four Stories


Today's collection of reads is hugely different. I bring you four stories - of three different women and one man. These stories will stump and shake you up; for once, I can't say, 'Happy Reading'. 

  • A Polish girl’s journey across three continents - A Second World War story. (BBC)
  • Exodus: One woman's choice. (WaPo)
  • The blind faith of the one-eyed matador. (GQ)
  • Jani's at the mercy of her mind. (LA Times

Let me leave with a profound thought of Hunter Thompson.
"We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self- respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness."

The life that moved me was of Jani's. Hope she grows into a fine young woman and makes her parents proud.
