“I don’t know how old I am, my children say I am 114. I haven’t had an ID since I was born, so I don’t know my age. I have forgotten many things, they seem like dreams in my eyes. All I remember is that these streets and neighborhoods did not exist, but they have all become houses and workplaces now. Nothing is the same, everything has changed in the same way that our bodies have changed. I used to be agile in moving around, but now I cannot get up or sit down, I cannot even raise my hands.
I stay here until the evening, I see how my life and age pass before my eyes like a movie. Life is as difficult as it is beautiful. People need to live in a way that they know the cost and value of their own lives”.
