“When ISIS invaded Mosul, all of our lives were in danger. Since our village was so close to the center of the city, we were also in danger. We were forced to leave our house and belongings and head to Hawler. A lot of people in Hawler appreciate us and respect us, but it is undeniable that no place compares to home. I really miss my village’s evenings, and I really miss my friends. I hope one day we can go back to our own place and begin my education again. It’s true that we are safe here, but the conditions are not ideal as well. My father and I are shepherds in someone else’s farm, and the money is much less compared to our efforts. I truly wish we could pass this difficult time and get back to how we used to be.”
