Day seventeen

Anna [Odessa]

I wake up and know today is the day I have to leave. I take only the essentials: personal hygiene products, a change of clothes, my documents and some food for the journey. I recharge my powerbank before I head out.

If you’re reading this, I ask you for one thing—to embrace your loved ones. Now and every day. Remind each other how much you love each other. Forgive each other’s stupid mistakes. Believe me, you don’t want to go through this.
