The Free and The Unfree

“Fences like this exist all over the world. We hope you never have to encounter one.” -From John Boyne’s “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”

I closed my 2012 by reading “The Boy in Striped Pajamas”. I also watched the movie right after. The fiction, in itself, is very sad.

But.

What’s even sadder is knowing that fictions like these have happened and still do happen up to this day. It’s heart-breaking, really.
