Woman Shows Her Strength By Relating Traumatic Experience In Heart-Stopping Series Of GIFs

The other day I was listening to NPR and they were talking about the plight of the refugees from the Syrian civil war, many of whom live in cramped conditions that only exacerbate the stress caused by the horror of being forced to leave their homes and the uncertainty of whether or not they will ever be able to return. They were interviewing one of the women who was trying to keep her family together in that awful environment and when they asked her what the worst part was, she immediately — I mean, without even waiting for the translator — replied, “Oh, for sure it’s when they pronounce my name wrong.” I had to run into another room so no one would see me crying.
