Again another one of my friends whom I grew up with is dead. What's the reason? I don't know. Why was he targeted and what happened, only god knows. The news of his death just totally shocked me.
Never would I have thought I would come home in October and not see Shama, Marvin, or Jahmali. Never would I have thought I would be afraid to come back home.
I am in South Korea now serving in the army.
