My family was safe [from the bombs] thank god, but we cannot guarantee anything. Anyone could die anytime. When we go out we are scared that we are not able to go back to our homes alive. My brother has lost his best friends in this war and it is very sad to hear that your neighbor has passed away or is wounded. It is very sad and scary.
“The war is holding me back from what I want to be. I am not able to find a good job in the field of my studies, which is very frustrating. Everything is very difficult”.
