Life Through Her Eyes: 7

                                                                The Most Asked Question in Gaza 

Where to now? Where can I go that is safe, but still call home? 

If hospitals, UN schools, mosques, and churches are not safe, where can I seek shelter? 

My home was bombed on day 15 

My parent's home was bombed on day 20 

My friend's home was bombed on day 30 

My relative's home was bombed on day 31 

My co-worker's home was bombed on day 35 

The tent I bought leaks rainwater and my kids are always cold 

The streets are full of rotten corpses 

The whole strip is under attack 

My hometown is no longer inhabitable 

Where do I go?
