Want money and fame without having to become a crime lord? Go white! Want anything at all without working too hard? White’s the way to go! The color of innocence? White of course.

On June 5th, 2017 Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates abruptly cut off their diplomatic relations with the tiny oil-and gas-rich Gulf state of Qatar. They also gave Qatari citizens 14 days to leave their territory and banned their citizens from traveling to or residing in Qatar.
This severing of diplomatic relations included withdrawing ambassadors and imposing a trade bloc. Egypt cut off its diplomatic relations with Qatar but never forced its citizens in Qatar to leave the state.

Sorrow. It is the first thing that will come to your mind when you hear the word death. Sometimes fear even creeps in.
Do supernatural elements exist? Is there omnipresence and omnipotence? Is there life after death? Some questions have always remained unanswered. And their remainder as unanswered questions is rather soothing compared to the attempt to answer them.
