SLAUGHTER! MASSACRE! HORROR! CRIME! BLOOD! SCREAMS! TEARS! DESPAIR!
That's what Vaso Miskin Street looks like today. Two shells exploded in the street and one in the market... It's unbelieveable. I got a lump in my throat and a knot in my tummy. HORRIBLE. They are taking the wounded to the hospital. We kept going to the window hoping to see Mommy, but she wasn't back... Daddy and I were tearing our hair out. We didn't know what happened to her. Was she alive? ... I looked out the window one more time and... I SAW MOMMY RUNNING ACROSS THE BRIDGE. As she came into the house she started shaking and crying... Thank God, Mommy is with us. Thank God.
A HORRIBLE DAY. UNFORGETTABLE.
