The other face of diamond
I watched a movie, two days ago, starting with Leonardo Di Caprio called " Blood Diamond". Well I am not a regular viewer for movies, and when I watch a movie, I try to pick it away from being horror or action, but that was nice.
Although it had too much killing and I jumped to the chair beside me several time, but it was too true, that I liked it. The movie for whom they did not see or hear about is talking about a country in AFrica where it has a lot of diamonds. And the troops are fighting and killing each others, not only that they tortue each other so as to control on the mining process of diamond.
You can see how they burn homes, cut people's hands, millions of refugees and thousands are dieing.
On the other side, a famous jewlery dealer is taking an advantage of the situation there, where he buys from the invading group the diamond.
Without getting too much into the details, but while I was watching the movie, I kept on saying " ElhamdAllah", " Thanks God". The fact that this happens in a way or another in different countries and the horror people feels and live in.
I realized that moving in the street and sleeping safely is itself a bless for so many in different countries who are always in terror.
While I wa jumping to the next chair beside me because of hearing too much bombs and closing my eyes to avoid seeing intensively too many cars were shot and burned in the movie for no good reason except that they are not among their group.
How many in the real life jump and feel by horror for hearing Real bombs hitting down their houses.
How many in real life are refugees after they had homes and families? Now they lost everything.
I felt so grateful and thankful to God for all the things that might upset someone or may dissatisfy him/her is not comparable to what these people feel.
The other thing that astonished me in the movie, that people were fighting too much for a piece of diamond to the extent that they would risk by their own lives for some bunch of money. I know it may sound naieve for so many. But honestly, how much does this diamond worth beside risking by your own life? Thinking of the others who died and the millions of refugees and thousands who died. Does it worth it for them ? I can't figure by what calculations they assumed that some bunch of money regardless of how much it worth would be on the account of all of this. The human beings lives are cheap in comparable to that extent.
Aren't we all leaving that one day ? We are not going to take any of them when we die, nor it worths to live the extra luxurios life in the world in compare to make people safe and happy.
I am touched by this because again this happens in the real life but in a different version.
I realized while I was watching a movie, how good things can tun to curse. Because this country had so many diamond, there was too many killing and poverty for its citizens. Maybe if it did not have diamond, they would of live a better life.
One last thing, i guess if this movie is by anyway related to be true, it is not worth it to wear a diamond ring, showing ir off, on the expense of lives and shed by so many blood.
