Sitting home being scared to leave the house and worrying if you will even come back home. Never going to meet your uncle again crying everyday missing him feeling like a part of your body is gone and never will it come back. Trying to go see your aunt and see if she is ok but can not go because you are scared if you will even make it back home Everyday wishing to see your uncle again and even your family that is alive hoping for them not to be hurt. Sitting in the same country and neighbourhood but not going to each others house contacting them on phone never seen them for months . Leaving the country with seeing your family for the last time feeling their hugs make you feel awesome. Entering a country you know no one. Dreaming every night wondering if can see your family ever again with them not being hurt.
