Christians of the East 

Today is Good Friday for the eastern Orthodox Church. Surely this year is different for many who follow the eastern calendar. Two weeks ago 2 bishops from the Greek and Syriac Orthodox Church in Aleppo, Syria were kidnapped. I am not talking about this as a Christian or saying that Christians in the Middle East are targeted, which I believe its a known fact by now.

For me its more than that, I believe everyone is a target in this war. What bothers me the most, seeing how the world is still watching the ongoing daily massacres in Syria.

In fact the talk about chemical weapons these days proves how hypocrite is the so called international community. Non-chemical weapons do also kill thousands of people. Non-chemical weapons do also destroy entire neighborhoods if not cities. Above all non-chemical weapons do terrorize civilians, as much as chemical weapons would do.

Regardless, saying this doesn't mean I'm calling for a war or for a game changer or whatever. I'm just frustrated and I don't know what exactly to say about this war anymore.

Last week was so cold and it ended with a quick blizzard on Friday morning. Since Saturday the weather started to get warmer on the east coast. Hope there will be at least one more snow blizzard this winter, before spring starts in less than 2 weeks now.

Mardi Gras :::

The biggest and most famous Mardi Gras parade takes place in New Orleans, but still it was really fun to see the family parade in Shreveport with so many funny costumes.

Here are some photos from the Mardi Gras in Shreveport, LA.

Interesting incident today at Marcy Avenue Station in Brooklyn. Have no idea why he ended down on the train tracks and was laying like that. Anyway, the good thing he seemed fine after the police got him up.
