With the violence against many women and children, it hurt my feelings, I was sad, I was in pain, my tears flowed every time I read their story. Right now Myanmar is at war, many people are suffering, losing their jobs, losing their loved ones, breaking up their families. Why Yemen Statistics acid to war, war, destruction grease all the time now?”
