IN MEMORIAM OF ANNE FRANK

I’ve just finished reading The Diary by Anne Frank. And it hit me so much that I just couldn’t keep my mouth (or fingers) shut. Because, even though this article might be read only by a few people, she deserves to be remembered, together with all those people killed during Holocaust. Anne Frank Anne Frank’s…

ANIMALS ARE NOT OUR TOYS

When I was in Mariánské Lázně last month, I saw these horses. I slowly came closer and watched them for a while. They looked so sad. One couldn’t even see what was around him because it would scare him, and the other had such desperate gaze. He looked as if nothing mattered to him anymore,…

WHAT IS BEAUTY?

During my short life I’ve heard many people making comments about appearances of others. ‘How could he want her, she’s not even pretty’, or ‘Have you noticed she’s lost weight?

ONLY WHEN WE’RE LOST

It‘s everywhere around us. It’s in the pictures, in the television, some people say such things on daily basis. While…

STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

VYSTUP ZE SVÉ KOMFORTNÍ ZÓNY This is the sentence I have been hearing a lot recently. “Step out of your comfort zone.” It’s because I’m quite obsessed with Ted Talks and travelling and almost every single traveller knows that this is a very important factor if we want to explore the world. People tend to…

HOW TO ACHIEVE PEACE?

This is the question that people have been asking themselves since the beginning of time. What is peace? And if there is such thing as peace, how can we find it? It’s quite funny, actually, because I’ve been thinking about this question for three weeks now and I started thanks to an anime Naruto (if…
