My Friends Died

By September 19, 2013Iraq, Refugee Relief

I am 9 years old and from Qamishli, Syria. Life was great before the war. I loved playing basketball and soccer with my school friends. Two of my friends, who were 9 and 10 years old, were both killed from the war. This makes me very sad.

My family decided to leave Syria when this happened about two months ago. Life is better in the camps because I feel safer.
