Syrian Rockets falling over my head
I had this experience once, I was in the Golan Heights for a birthday trip. Early in the morning there were sirens indicating danger in the vicinity. Then I heard the explosions. They were far away enough not to feel the room shake. We went into a safe room until it passed and it was safe to come out again. I thought the incident had passed, and went for a walk in nature with my son. While we were outside again the sirens. This time I was exposed so I hid behind a rock. My son was scared. When the sirens stopped, I ran with him to an old Syrian bunker. But when we were exposed, there was an explosion in the air right over our heads. He fell and scraped bis knee, so I picked him up and ran as fast as I could to the safe room. After that, I packed our bags and went straight home. This experience haunts me. I can’t get over it. I am terrified thinking about the danger my son was in. This event eventually led to me leaving my country of Israel and moving back to my home country of USA. These war wounds stay with me and I feel like I am experiencing it over and over.
