Neighborly love in the midst of war. Daily story · 4 April, 2014
  • From 2006 to 2010, was the worst year of our lives, lots of bombs was going off around the entire country. The government didn’t care about the citizens. All they cared about was to find a way to kick the Terrorist out of my country. In 2009 a new neighbor moved right next our house. We didn’t know who they were or what they do. After a few days they started to expand their house, while expanding they crossed over and built over our land. My father tried to talk with them, but they were arrogant and ignored what he said. They told him do whatever you want but you can’t change it. So my dad went to the police and filed a suit against them. The police didn’t care and all they did was send a letter to them telling that they shouldn’t exceed our property. After a few days, there was a continuous ringing from the doorbell. My father and I directly knew who were they. They were screaming, “open the gate if you are men”. So we both went out and we saw more than 10 men holding guns and sticks. These men wanted to beat my dad. My dad pushed me back to the house to protect me. My dad was fortunately well liked in our neighborhood. The whole street defended him from these people. They told the new neighbor, “if you want to do anything to this man you will have to get through us first”. The men got scared, left my father alone, but directly after, everyone on my street, with my father, demanded to the police to kick these people out because no one would like them to be there. At the end, after the police arrested them they found out they were gang and they took them away.
