Wars might end, but they do not go away. Many try to forget what they have experienced and move on from there, but others, like Ibtisam Barakat in the poem above, have chosen to remember. To tell their stories. To inspire a solution for the conflicts that have touched their lives so painfully.
On that note, you might want to pair Barakat’s memoir with more books about the Middle East.
Or perhaps you can direct readers to other stories of war and conflict that may inspire them to come together for peace.
