This work has reached the exceptional level
Loss and loneliness, during war.

Lost and Found!

by lauralumummu

Standing here, I feel dizzy as the crowd is swirling around me. Shivering from the cold, aware of many voices and children crying, someone hands me a coffee. I sip it gratefully.


I close my eyes and picture my apartment with tears streaming down my face.

Having little money, no friends, or family--

 At 75 years old – my home is gone! I have walked for days.

Crying out in my heart, I say, “Dear God what should I do?” 

 “ Sonia!” A neighbor that I hardly know, shouts. “Come with us my sister has room for you too!”
Gratitude overwhelms me!
