20 years ago, just like today, i was here in Rumaythya, Thursday 2 of August I was heading to my summer final exam at AL-Qourtobi High school in Salwa. I Woke up early on the sound of distant sounds that my and I brother did not recognize. And the sound of airplanes breaking the sound barrier was. At school we were all gathered in the school yard to be told that there will be no exams today and we have to go back home. I was young and didn’t even think about what lays a head the coming months. Just as i exited the school I was surprised to find my brother waiting for me, he came back to pick me up. In the car he explained to me that he heard the bad news over the radio. Kuwait was invaded by Iraq. 2nd August 1990.
