Welcome to Sarajevo

So I watched an indie film called "Welcome to Sarajevo" tonight with the people I'm living with for the summer.
I don't usually like stuff like this, to be honest. Because it makes me feel uncomfortable. And it's not "fun." And there are explosions and gore, but it's not all stylized or super-entertaining.
But it's based on a true story about the siege of Sarajevo (Bosnia) in 1992. I was four. The kids in the movie,though actors, were based off real children, real people. They're my age now. They lived through one of the more modern wars, and it was horrific.

I've had things so good here. I've been so blessed.
I'm feeling more and more lately that it's time to give back.
