Good Shepherd
"A good shepherd is the one who would lay down his life for his sheep." When I look at this photo I always remember these words. The dusty and arduous journey taken by sheep in Bitlis. Flocks of sheep take this dusty path to reach the highlands where they graze until the middle of July, after milking. The shepherds are always with their sheep. They eat with them, talk to them, sleep next to them, and would even lay down their lives for them if necessary. This is their lifestyle.

"الراعي الصالح هو الذي يبذل نفسه في سبيل خرافه". يتردّد صدى هذه الكلمات في أذني كلّما وقع نظري على هذه الصورة. تعكس هذه الصورة الرحلة المتربة والشاقة التي قطعتها الأغنام في بدليس. تسلك قطعان الأغنام هذا المسار الترابي لتصل إلى المرتفعات حيث ترعى حتى منتصف شهر يوليو بعد أن يتم حلبها. لا يفارق الرعاة أغنامهم أبداً، إذ يأكلون معها، ويتحدثون معها، وينامون بجانبها، ويضحّون بحياتهم من أجلها إذا لزم الأمر. هذا هو أسلوب حياتهم.
