“HAK / Right”

Story of a human walking barefoot, without counting the steps or looking back; leaving the name, the identity, the language; taking her breath and conscience with herself and opening her eyes into the darkness. Voice of embracing sorrow and rebellion. Maybe someday at your doorsteps, maybe someday inside your hand, maybe a voice reaches to our ears in the middle of all that happens around. Maybe the voice of rebellion is the strongest voice. Tells her story land after land, place after place, person after person, wandering up and down. On a day guns blow, minutes just do not pass, when everyone breathes holding on to their lives; she gazes them all from a distance. Smells and sees everything. Rumble starts, legs cross but she stops and sees them all. Then she walks noting everything in her mind; about all she has, about never ending wars, about murdered children, darkening soil, drying rivers. On an unknown month, on an unknown day, at an unknown place the blow of a gun and start of her walk happens at the at the same time. She tells this murder that happens or could happen on any day at anywhere with the language of falling leaves and millions of silent people. This story is a flame of rebellion that one person lights by walking over many lands barefoot in the name of whole universe, in the name of reaching beauties, joys and happiness. This story is a proof of life of a young person who died to protect her in front of her eyes, his voice and his dreams come true.
