In Photos: “Becoming South Sudan” by Alinka Echeverria (2011).

It’s been a little over three years since the four million voters from Africa’s youngest country voted in a referendum to secede from Sudan and create the Republic of South Sudan. January 9th, 2011, was the day that changed everything, the day history was made and the day the world’s 193rd nation was birthed. Exactly six months later on July 9th, 2011, South Sudan officially became a sovereign and independent nation.

However, less than five years later the country has found itself in an ongoing conflict as fighting between government forces and rebel armies (chiefly the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement - SPLM) continue to take place over resources and territory. Today, April 15th, marks exactly four months since the beginning of South Sudan’s current civil war. The war has so far displaced more than a million and killed over 10,000. UNICEF warns that the South Sudan conflict and famine could kill 50,000 children within months.

Connection

labelledamesansdice:

There are places we’ve traveled
together. In the mind, spaces
I have never shared with
another.

There is a cosmos within us,
where we touch upon the eternal.
There is this religion we create
when I am in you.

All is love. Euphoria. Excelsior.

It is pure and it is a heated
balm that sheathes over the flaws
that have manifested and almost
caused me to ruin. They are
the bed sores of a once unclaimed
soul that was malnourished.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
Anaïs Nin (via observando)
