"We got shot at, humiliated. We are starving. Our children are scattered in different places looking for food. We possess nothing."

"I hope that the war in our country will be over soon, and that there will be justice."
"I hope to provide means for living for my children. I hope the war could stop so we could go back to our house. I have many hopes."
