      The situations people go through which leads them to do this as a last case scenario where they're stuck between a rock and a hard place having to not only leave their "house" or even greater, their "homes", no they have to abandon their whole "LIFE" and start all over with much less resources and items they're able to carry...

    2. When I tell you of how I smuggled in fancy chocolates and trendy shoes through the checkpoints at a risk to my life, are you disappointed in us for not being pristine in our victimhood, or must I add a note to explain how even in siege people might prioritize luxury over necessity to live as opposed to merely survive?

      This paragraph resonates with me how sometimes we hold onto things considered as luxury even at our low points or at times that it might not make sense to others due to how precious it might be to us.

    1. When you hear me exclaim, over and over, “Alhamdulillah!”—“Praise God!”—when I hear that my son or husband has been killed by a sniper or carbomb or left gutted on the side of the road by the shabbiha (though we now use the word martyred for all the war dead, including two-week old daughters who die because of a siege on medical supplies), do you think me so twisted into barbarism by my baffling religion that I might truly find joy in this news, or must I add a note to explain that submitting to God’s will is the only way I have not to go utterly mad with grief fighting it?

    2. Fear is something you get used to, it becomes the new baseline from which your body operates. Quivering, animal, alert. You even come, in the dark malja’ of your consciousness, to accept the idea of your own death

      Apparently, this is the aftermath of war that makes everything seems black by getting used to feel scared all the time, dealing with fear and "accepting the idea of your own death".

    3. Unable to allow ourselves to truly believe anymore, after all that we have lived and seen

      This is very sad! I really felt so sorry for her. This specific sentence definitely highlights every Lebanese citizen's negative thought on themselves as well as their miserable and pessimist perspective on life in general after war.

    4. Sitting on a worn gray couch with earplugs in, trying to block out the sounds of sheering metal from the construction site right under my window as I translate stories from Arabic to English for the Damascus Bureau, an under-project of the Institute for War and Peace Reporting.

      In my opinion, Lina Mounzer effectively used descriptive details in this part in order to describe the atmosphere surrounding her and in such a way that a clear picture of her current situation is actually formed in the reader's mind. It also involves paying close attention to the details by using different senses.

    5. I have fled Aleppo from the increased fanaticism of the rebels, I have fled Aleppo from the chokehold of the regime, I have fled Aleppo to Turkey, I have fled Aleppo to Lebanon, I have fled Aleppo not knowing if I will ever return, or what I might find if I do.

      Repeating the phrase "I have fled Aleppo" several times (5 times to be specific) definitely emphasizes the writer's tragic setting and highlights it. Henceforth, the use of repetition in this specific case is actually a powerful tool that turns any reader's attitude from eager interest to downright hostility.
