2years ago today:
To remember everyone affected during the Marawi seige, I am reblogging my open letter to the Children of war.
(An Open Letter to Children of War)
I wish I could say I know how you feel but really, no one of us, outside the war zone could say that.
I understand you have been through a lot and I salute you for not giving up.
5 months of fear; 5 months of uncertainty, 5 months of being in evacuation area; 5 months under the mercy of people sending you your basic needs; 5 months out of school; 5 months of terror; 5 months of questioning what happened to your beloved place. Long months of asking: ‘Will we ever get out of here alive?’
I know that’s too much for kids like you to experience. I know that’s the most unfair thing children like you would ever deal with. But please know that after the war, you are the strongest and the bravest kids in my eyes.
It’s not easy…
