"I had not slept so well for months now, and so far I had been able to avoid my nightmares by busying myself day and night with listening to and writing Bob Marley's songs. But that night I had nightmare that was different from the ones I had been having ."
"It began with my swimming in a river in Matru Jong with my brother Junior."
"We ran home for dinner, racing each other. When we got there, the food was sitting in pots, but no one was around. I turned to ask my brother what was happening, but he was gone. I was alone and it was dark."
I found a light and turned it on. There were tons of men in the room holding weapons with which they hurt each other. Their blood filled the room. I began crying as the blood filled the room. The men disappeared and the door swung open. I ran outside to find my mother, father and my two brothers. "It was the first time I had dreamt of my family since I started running away from the war."
"The next afternoon I went to see Esther, and she could tell that something was bothering me"

I had this dream last night. I don't know what to make of it.
None of these things are your fault.
"Even though I had heard that phrase from every staf member-and frankly I had always hated it- I began that day to believe it."
