Tears for a Future That Might Never Come

Description

Israa remembers her school in Syria. She says, “I want to return to Syria, my Syria, a free Syria.”

Once, Israa thought her life mattered. On the day of her final exam, warring factions destroyed her school in Syria, shattering her dreams of earning a high-school diploma. The 18-year-old remembers glass flying everywhere, hitting students in the face. Thousands of Syrian schools have been attacked or destroyed. The honor student now spends her time locked inside a tiny flat with at least 10 others in an impoverished section of Zarqa. She says, “I want to return to Syria, my Syria, a free Syria.”
