"So many thousands of innocent people had to be killed by bullets"

views: 1186

You never know how life will turn out — sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. When the fighting began, my life changed dramatically.

I haven't lived in Donetsk for four years. I have left a lot of things there: my apartment, my childhood toys, etc. My friends and even my grandmother stayed there. She comes to visit us sometimes. We can't see her more often. I am very worried about that.

We couldn't reach to her because of the war. We couldn't communicate. Luckily, later the lines were restored. We are very happy when grandma comes to visit us.

I would like to change a lot of things in my life. I wish war would stop, and we would be able to return to Donetsk again. My parents used to go to Donetsk to visit my grandmother to see if everything was OK with the apartment.

The world would be better without the war, because it destroys people's lives. So many thousands of innocent people were killed by bullets and shell fragments?

If it were not for this horror, all people would live peacefully on the earth. Too bad it' can't be that way. However, we only hope for the better and brighter future!
