New Year’s Eve

“When I hear all these sounds out side, I get a flash back memory for the same sounds we were listening in Syria last year. But, the difference is that these sounds now are sounds of happiness and joy …full of laughters and life, while those sounds last year and now while I am writing, are sounds of bombs; explosions; gun shoots full of death, crying, black ashes and smoke and cursing.

At this moment exactly some homes are burying their owners beneath , some mothers have just lost their babies, some children are watching their parents bleeding to death. Some people are dying of hunger, some others dying of pain, and others for heartbreak.

I wish my parents and the rest of our families ….. the life …….and…. the safety ….and the happiness for the new year.” – Rami, Syrian refugee
